WA Lege Day 24: Voucher cards, official English, no prez primary?

OLYMPIA -- Another full day of hearings today, with discusions of eligibility for public assistance, limits to using state benefit "voucher cards" at places like casinos, and a resolution to make English the language of "all official proceedings."

(Editor's note: English is the official language of this blog, because the author can't speak any other language.)

Other topics of hearings include Medicaid fraud, health benefit exchanges, teaching the history of civil righs, eliminating the state printing office, and cancelling next year's presidential primary because the state's short on cash.

No word  yet on when the Senate might take up the unemployment insurance rate hike again after Wednesday's problems getting an amended version of the House bill onto the floor.
