WA Lege SpecSess: Capital budget passes

OLYMPIA -- The House passed the supplemental capital budget, the "bricks and mortar" budget that spends money on things like school buildings and sewer plants, as well as fire reduction, water projects and corrections.

It passed 61-36. Republicans, including Rep. Gary Alexander of Olympia, warned of the rising debt level the state is amassing. But Democrats said the bill provides jobs as well as needed infrastructure.

The end of the session is near.
