WA Lege Day 99: One week left (theoretically)

OLYMPIA — The Legislature moves into its last regularly scheduled week with budgets to reconcile, taxes to raise or not raise and other bills to pass.

Sunday is Day 105, and if there's no budget deal by then, we're looking at a special session, either right away or after a cooling off period in which budget negotiators have a chance to come up with a deal without the rest of the Legislature hanging around. (And possibly without the public able to watch.)

With the clock ticking down, the House and Senate have both put a possible evening session on the calendar today, along with their regular daytime sessions and committee hearings.

A full list of today's committee hearings can be found inside the blog.
