WA Lege Day 100: Hitting the century mark

OLYMPIA -- Both chambers are in a concurring mood this morning, moving relatively quickly through bills they have both passed previously, albeit in slightly different forms.

Heavier lifting may await the afternoon. The House may debate its Capital Budget sometime after lunch, while the Senate Ways and Means Committee has a hearing on a pair of changes to state agencies and a vote on terminating a property tax deferral program.

Among bills on the Senate concurrence calendar likelly to be approved are a proposal for cameras in school buses, a ban on "shark finning" and one to change the way personnel contracts are negotiated at the University of Washington.
