OLYMPIA -- The Legislature appears to be catching its collective breath today after activity surrounding the economic forecast on Thursday.
With relatively few committee hearings and little expected floor activity, the honorables will be able to knock off by mid afternoon at the latest. Some are heading home for more town hall meetings over the weekend, including Reps. Susan Fagan, R-Pullman, and Kevin Parker, R-Spokane, who have a joint town hall meeting at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Fire District 8 Station, 6117l S. Palouse Highway. That's pretty close to the southern border of Parker's 6th District and the northern reaches of Fagan's 9th District.
Among things that are happening today, the Senate will vote on a resolution on the tragedies in Japan.
