Special Session: Legislative leaders, governor continue to meet

OLYMPIA -- Legislative leaders and their top budget writers were given a proposal by Gov. Chris Gregoire that represents her "go-home" proposal, her staff said.

Democrats and Republicans met separately on the proposal -- which includes a version of the K-12 insurance reforms, pension reforms and four-year balanced budget requirements -- then returned to for another meeting with the governor.

A spokesman for Gregoire said her package was aiming for "a middle ground...one that would not make anyone happy."

No details on what they are proposing and counterproposing. Anything they work out will have to be shown to the separate caucuses to see if it can pass.
