WA Lege Day 18: Physical therapy, lakes and an array of hearings

OLYMPIA — There’s not much action expected on the floor of the House, and the Senate has no floor action at all, so almost everything interesting will happen elsewhere today.

The governor has a 10:30 a.m. press conference to talk about federal transportation projects. U.S. Sen. Patty Murray announced this morning the state is getting $590 million in federal money for high speed rail upgrades in what’s know as the Pacific Northwest Cascades corridor, (aka Vancouver, B.C., to Seattle to Portland).

It is Lakes Day, when the state’s Lakes Protection Association comes to town to lobby legislators, and Physical Therapy Day, when Physical Therapists do the same. The latter have a big tent set up near the fountain east of the capitol and plan a noon demonstration on the North steps.

Committee hearings cover a wide range of topics, including money for public schools, higher fees for field burning, restrictions on outings for dangerous patients at mental institutions and changes to initiative rules.
