WA Lege SpecSess: Capital budget passes Senate

OLYMPIA -- Moving rapidly toward adjournment, the Senate passed the supplemental capital budget with almost no debate, 33-13, and went at ease for a few minutes.

Capital budget now goes to the House, which, if the pattern holds should pass it and allow both to move toward adjourment.

If they can do all this in less than 80 minutes, they will technically be done before midnight and technically be done on the 29th Day of the 30 Day session.

So that's a small victory, unless one considers it was only supposed to last 7 days is another matter.
