WA Lege Day 56: Tax vote pending

OLYMPIA -- The state Senate appears to be almost done debating the merits or demerits of the Democrats' tax bill.

Now there's just one question to answer: Will they take one vote on the entire bill, or, as Sen. Don Benton just requested in a motion, take 22 separate votes -- one for each of the different tax changes in SB 6143.

Lt. Gov. Brad Owen took time to consider Benton's motion, and should be back any moment.
