Special Session Day 23: Liquor distribution, tax increases

OLYMPIA -- One week to go in the special session, but the pace is less than hectic.

Senate Ways and Means Committee is scheduled to vote on proposals to consider selling or leasing the state's liquor distribution system, and to eliminate some tax breaks for businesses.

That will come after harings on long-term disability and teacher pay.

The Senate has floor activity possible, but schedulers say it should be "light" today but "heavy" tomorrow.
There will be no floor action in the House today, with most members told Tuesday they could go home. They might not be called back before  Monday.
