WA Lege Day 23: Senate to vote on unemployment insurance changes

OLYMPIA -- The State Senate is scheduled to vote -- probably late this morning -- on proposed changes in the unemployment insurance system that will keep rates from going  up as scheduled.

There is a bit of urgency in all this, considering it must be passed and signed by the governor by Feb. 8 or the rate hike takes effect. We'll follow that as it develops.

Elsewhere around the Capitol, it is Washington Fire Chiefs and Fire Commissioners Legislative Day, State Dietetic Association Legislative Day, and it is also Burke Museum Day, which means the museum located on the U-Dub campus has events in the Rotunda through mid afternoon.
