Special Session Day 25: Lots of Ways, but do we have the Means?

OLYMPIA — Day 25 will mostly deal with Ways and Means. Both the Senate and the House committees have hearings, but with two very different agendas.

House Ways and Mean has a 9 a.m. start, with nine bills on the hearing agenda and nine scheduled for executive session. Topics include expanding family planning, raising the cost of Running Start, cracking down on Medicaid fraud and funneling money into a budget stabilization account.

Senate Ways and Means, which has a 1:30 p.m. start, had its agenda posted shortly after 10 a.m. this morning. It will be voting on setting up an Opportunity Scholarship board, the new medical marijuana law, and adding 25 percent to all preferential rates offered on the state's Business and Occupation tax.

Today's special session math: Day 25 means the special session is 25/30ths gone, which equals 5/6ths, which equals 83.33 percent.
