WA Lege Day 94: Lots of bills will get votes

OLYMPIA — The House and Senate are expected to vote on a boatload of bills today on a wide variety of topics.

That's because any bill not connected to the budget, that has passed one chamber must pass the other chamber by 5 p.m. Otherwise, it's pretty well dead unless there's some herculanean lift of parliamentary procedures to get it through. (For those wondering about Gov. Jay Inslee and a crew of legislators announcing brand new anti-DUI legislation yesterday, those bills will be a lesson in how the normal rules are circumvented to get something done that almost everyone wants.

Look for updates throughout the day on bills that make the cut.
