Special Session Day 24: Senate might do something, House gone til Saturday

Relatively calm this morning in and around the Capitol.

OLYMPIA — The Senate is scheduled to convene at 10 a.m., but doesn't have a schedule yet. They'll break to get some bills queued up shortly after invocation, then caucus, then go to lunch, then vote on bills.

(Editor's note: Original story suggested they 'd go to work on the floor before lunch. Notice from the Senate staff at 12:15 p.m. says, nope, they're breaking for lunch first, then having a floor session. Apparently they worked up an appetite in caucus.)

There are some “heavy lifting” proposals on the list, which can be found by going inside the blog.

House members will be trying to figure when to head back to the capital by Saturday morning after blowing Dodge earlier this week with expectation they might be off until Monday.

A bit of special session math: We're 24/30ths gone, which equals 12/15ths, which equals 8/10ths which equals 4/5ths which equals 80 percent.

Not that anyone's counting.
