Budget meeting at 1:30 p.m.

OLYMPIA -- Gov. Chris Gregoire meets at 1:30 p.m. today with Democratic and Republican leaders of the state Senate and House to discuss the state's budget problems and their suggested solutions.

And the prospect of a special session to address them.

Meanwhile, Senate Republicans released their list of suggested cuts. They had refused to release the list Tuesday, saying that would be up to the governor. The governor's office said it would be up to Senate Republicans.

After a day of this "After you, Alfonse. No, no, after you Gaston", Senate Rs finally decided to take the initiative. We'll post their list soon.
