Special Session Day 18: House in, Senate out

OLYMPIA — The House returns for votes on some bills, sometime today.

The bills to be voted up or down (presumably up, else why bother with the vote?) haven't been released yet, but the list of potential bills offers plenty of  interesting items from which to choose.

The House will have the spotlight all to itself, because most of the Senate is gone until Monday. Leadership is reportedly around, working on the budget and trying to reach compromises on sticking points like workers compensation changes but the public won't see that until there's something close to agreement. (Think of it as getting the sausage when it's ready to toss on the grill.)

After signing about 30 bills yesterday, Gov. Chris Gregoire may have developed writers cramp. She isn't scheduled to sign any more bills until Monday.
