WA Lege Day 30: Senate floor action

OLYMPIA -- The state Senate will vote soon on whether to suspend the supermajority provisions of I-960 for tax increases.

Republican members have been ready for a while, walking about the floor making "drink the Kool-Aid" references. Democrats are just coming out of their caucus where they discussed the upcoming votes.

In the gallery are more than 100 white-coated pharmacy students, so if anyone really does take poison, they could come in handy...

Before voting on Senate Bill 6843, they'll be voting on propsals to freeze pay and hold back on bonuses for state workers.
