WA Lege Day 5: Damp and slow

OLYMPIA -- A gray Friday with relatively little committee action and even less floor action.

The Senate's main task this morning was passing a resolution on National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. The House was in and out quickly.

Committee meetings were mainly "work sessions" in which issues rather than specific bills are discussed. House Education is talking education reform and Senate Higher Education is talking about the way various colleges handle credit for prior classes. Senate Judiciary has a hearing on the victimization of homeless people.

Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown has her first press conference of the session at 1 p.m.
