WA Lege Day 56: Owen says can’t split up tax bill for a vote

OLYMPIA -- Lt. Gov. Brad Owen said rules don't allow dividing up a bill. It could result in "logistical chaos."

Sen. Don Benton, R-Vancouver, then moves to table, and Sen. Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville, asks for a roll call vote.

Motion fails, 17-31 on a party-line vote.

Vote on bill is next
