WA Lege SpecSess: Schedules uncertain

OLYMPIA -- Both houses of the Legislature start at 10 a.m.,  plan to break fairly quickly for caucuses, then come back for votes on "bills necessary to implement the budget."

Does that mean they, you know, have a budget?

Not necessarily. But the Senate may have a revenue bill -- read tax plan -- that they will vote on after lunch.

(Editor's note: Previous notice from the Senate said they'd vote "after a dinner break." That's been changed.)

Gov. Chris Gregoire wants them done by Sunday. They'd have to work Saturday and Sunday to do that, but there's no firm weekend schedule yet.
