House budgets come out today

OLYMPIA — House Democrats will release their proposals for two-year operating and capital projects budgets at noon today.

As dismissive as leading House Democrats have been about the Senate budget which passed last Friday, we can expect that it will have some new revenue, probably through the closing of some tax preferences, have more for social services and not suggest a cut in tuition for public universities and colleges. 

For those who want to see the budget drama unfold live, it will be broadcast on TVW.

Just how far apart the two budgets are at this point will offer some insight on whether the Legislature can wrap up its work by April 28, the last day allowed for the regular session.

Based on the last three years, a betting person would probably take the over, not the under, on any wager involving that subject.
