Spec Sess Day11: More than a third gone

OLYMPIA -- The Legislature continues its "special but we're in no real hurry" session with a series of committee hearings today and no votes on either floor.

No word on when, if at all, Gov. Chris Gregoire's proposed budget cuts will get out of either chamber's Ways and Means Committee and head for the floor.

Senate Ways and Means isn't even talking about the budget today. They have a joint meeting with the Senate Economic Development Committee on Project Pegasus. That started out as an effort to keep Boeing's 737 MAX assembly line in Washington state. Now that Boeing announced it will build the plane in Renton -- more a result of a deal with the company's unions -- Pegasus may be a project looking for a new goal.

Some other committees will meet throughout the day in work sessions, but others have cancelled hearings.
