WA Lege SpecSess: Negotiations continue

OLYMPIA — Day 24 of the special session looks to be a fairly quiet one.

Most legislators remain at home, with a few negotiators for the House and Senate sending tax proposals back and forth. No votes, no floor sessions, no committee meetings.

And no deal at this point.

Although Senate Democrats proposed a tax on beer to raise some revenue for the general fund, House negotiators said this morning they have not signed off  on that idea. They may have something new this afternoon. And they may not.

Legislators may be called back on Friday for floor sessions, and work through the weekend.

If there’s a hard and fast proposal. If not, well, the session ends Tuesday, and Gov. Chris Gregoire has said she won’t call them back for another round.

And yes, Spin Control was unusually early in the week, taking a couple days off. Sorry for the light blogging.
