WA Lege SpecSess: Senate back Thursday...for caucus

OLYMPIA -- The Senate will hold more than a pro forma session Thursday, with members being called back so Democrats can get an update on tax negotiations.

Sources said this doesn't necessarily mean they have a deal, or are within a frog's hair of one. But there have been some changes discussed for the "menu" of taxes proposed by the governor and passed by the House, and this would be a chance to sound Senate Democrats out on those.

Republicans don't really need to caucus. They aren't part of negotiations and they aren't going to vote for tax increases. Period.
