WA Lege Day 78: House budget today?

OLYMPIA — A House version of the 2011-13 general operating fund budget is rumored to be set for release today. Nothing official yet, but folks from the governor on down last week were pegging the release for today.

Gov. Chris Gregoire also observed that there would then be less than a month left in the session to work that spending plan through the process…the prospects for which she didn't seem terribly sanguine about.

It's a state furlough day, so many state employees have the day off without pay as a way of balancing out the 2009-11. Furloughs don't apply to legislators, however, so they have floor sessions and committee hearings.
