WA Lege SpecSess: Another day, another…not quite sure what

OLYMPIA—The Special Session goes into Day 3 with floor, with more than the  usual amount of green shirts, blouses and ties on display, and some very bad attempts at an Irish brogue. Some St. Patrick’s Day banter is being mixed in with fairly routine morning business, but more serious debate and votes are expected in the afternoon.

There’s a Senate Ways and Means Committee hearing at 12:30 p.m. Last night the tentative schedule included possibe hearings on a tax on home and community based services, making certain school and local government mandages optional and changes to the higher education loan program

It might also vote on whether to send about bills on healt savings accounts, eleimnate certain boards and commissions, forest fire prevention.
