WA Lege Day 30: Fixing the title

OLYMPIA -- Senate Democrats apparently will have to resurrect a Republican title that they previously rejected to pass a bill that makes changes to the supermajority requirements for tax increases.

That means Democrats take an amendment that they don't like, for a title written by Republicans to a bill they don't like. Should anyone care? Only in the sense that the title of the bill, if it passes, can restrict any changes the House may try to make when it moves to the other chamber.

There's a huddle at the podium by leaders of both parties, while the remainder of the senators are milling about.
