WA Lege Day 23: Cutoff

OLYMPIA — Today is the day that policy bills in the House have to get out of their committees, or else.

Or else what? Well, in most cases, if they involve policy rather than money, they’re dead. Thanks to amendments, complicated rules, and some members’s abilities to work them, there is a saying that nothing is, in the words of the Coroner of the Munchkins “really most sincerely dead” until the legislators go home. But in for most House policy bills, they bite the dust, take a dirt nap, end up on the ash heap of history…at least until next session.

In the mean time, it is Arts Day in the Capitol, as well as a day when members of the United Food and Commercial Workers union and the Refugee Women’s Alliance will be lobbying legislators.
