WA Lege Day 52: Long floor schedule

OLYMPIA -- The House and Senate both start early today, with plans to vote on bills this afternoon and into the evening. They're trying to clear out the bills that are relatively non-controversial before an upcoming cutoff deadline.

Senate Ways and Means, meanwhile, is dealing with some bills that cost money, noon.

Amid all this, school principals are in the Capitol. Legislators who misbehave run the risk of being sent to them.

A schedule of today's hearings is inside the blog.
