WA Lege Day 37: Cut ‘em off at the didn’t pass

OLYMPIA — At 5 p.m. today, some legislative coaches will turn into pumpkins — or some other type of vegetation that will be thrown on the compost heap.

That’s because today is one of several “cut off” days. A bill must be out of its house of origin by 5 or fall by the wayside as the legislative process moves forward.

Because of that, relatively noncontroversial bills that have come out of their committees will be moving through the House and Senate at a fairly rapid pace. The controversial ones, not so much.

But that means if you tune into TVW, you can probably catch one house or the other in action.
