Murray: ‘No surprises’ in budget

OLYMPIA — Budget negotiators continue to hold tight on the details of the general operating budget while insisting there is no problem with the agreement.

It's at the printer, will be distributed Tuesday to members at 9 a.m. and to the news media at 10 a.m. There will be no hearings on the budget (Tuesday is,after all, the 29th day of a 30 day session) but Murray said that's standard operating procedure. There will be hearings on about a dozen proposed changes to state law needed to make the budget work, he said.

“There are no surprises. There is no hidden information that people haven't seen,” he said.

Murray had root canal on Friday and was taking antibiotics Monday for the procedure. “The budget negotiations were worse than root canal.”
