WA Lege Day 30: Senate floor debate on tax votes coming

OLYMPIA --The state Senate has reconvened for floor debate on several major bills.

First up, after confirming several gubernatorial appointments and introducing guests in the gallery, will be the debate over a bill covering flooding in the Green River Valley,

That will be followed by a bill suspending bonuses for many state employees, then a range of bills  that cover everything from the disposition of human remains to transferring emergency food assistance programs to the state Ag Department to the placement of minors during child welfare cases.

At the end of the list is SB 6843, which allows for changes to Initiative 960, the law passed by voters in 2007 that requires a two-thirds majority to approve any tax increases.

Stay tuned. Spin Control will offer updates as warranted.
