Spec Sess Day17: A good day for adjournment?

OLYMPIA -- Some strong signs that this could be the last day of the Legislature's emergency session on the budget:

Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown, D-Spokane, in the Senate wings before the morning session started: "Looks like a good day for sine die." '

The Senate should have the votes to pass the same budget approved by the House Tuesday evening, she said. There are a few more bills that could come to a vote, including some of the governor's requested aid to aerospace training and a bill that would help military spouses who relocate to Washington get easier certification for certain jobs.

Sen. Bob Morton, R-Kettle Falls, said Republicans have been told to prepare for a long day, but the last day.

Most telling sign, however, is that most legislators and staff are smiling like they know this is the last hump to get over.
