WA Lege Day 58: Back to the committees

OLYMPIA -- Having gorged on floor votes in the last few days, both chambers of the Legislature return to committee action to hear bills the other house sent them.

It's an unusual mix of bills, including a bill on embalmers and another on disposition of unclaimed remains in Senate Government Operations, several liquor related bills in Senate Labor and Commerce and gifts to the state Ag Department in Senate Agriculture.

House Environment will take up the establishment of the Puget Sound Corp and the re-establishment of the road to the upper Stehekin Valley, House Education will study ways to blend student and family support programs with local health services, including a look at Spokane Public Schools and Community Mental Health.
