WA Lege Day 45: Votes on ballot envelopes, Civil rights history, other bills and the big headcount

OLYMPIA -- The House and Senate are both moving relatively uncontroversial bills before heading for long hearings in their respective Ways and Means committees this afternoon.

The Senate has bills on teaching the history of Civil Rights, one on a Puget Sound corps, and receiverships. The House has bills on street gang program, innovation schools and ballot envelopes. A vote on a bill on mortgage lending fraud was briefly delayed for some good-natured hazing of its sponsor Joe Fain of Auburn, because it was his first bill.

Legislative leaders as well as the governor should get information on the 2010 Census count around noon.

It is also Home Educator's Day and Civic Education Day at the Capitol.
