In Spokane, city officials and folks from Avista are unveiling an "electric vehicle charging" station at 11 a.m., in the parking lot just north of City Hall.

Expect a wide range of statements from various honorables talking about what a great planet we live on and how we need to protect it.

In other news, House Republicans, including Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, will announce a resolution to reform the earmark process.

And folks will continue talking about the latest statewide initiative to be filed, which would put a state income tax in place in Washington.
