WA Lege Day 29: I-960 Bill committee vote possible

OLYMPIA — The Senate Ways and Means Committee is expected to vote this afternoon on a bill that would suspend supermajorities for tax increases.

If it comes out of committee as expected, it could go to a floor debate on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, the House Ways and Means Committee discusses a proposal to break up the state’s “mega-agency”, the Department of Social and Health Services.

Gov. Chris Gregoire talks about the need to free up credit. The state Nurses Association is lobbying legislators.

Full schedule of hearings can be found inside the blog.
