Special Session Day 30: This is it, folks

OLYMPIA -- While the Final Days didn't begin with the Rapture at 6 p.m. Saturday as predicted, the final day of the special session has arrived.

The list of things to do is long. Expect the day to be likewise.

The House starts with a vote on restricting the debt limit, then moves on to the capital budget this morning.

The Senate's schedule isn't set yet, but they've got the operating budget and the capital budget to do, sometime today.

And both chambers have a series of separate bills that are necessary to make the operating budget work. Add to that various bills that individual legislators have nursed through the last 134 days, and need just one more vote in one house or the other, to turn someone's dream into a law.

Today is Day 30 of the 30-day special session. Stoppage time is about to run out.
