WA Lege Day 8: Marches and rallies

OLYMPIA -- Activists will march on the Capitol today, asking for several things.

The Community Action Network will be highlighting racial equality, or the lack of it, as they march from downtown Olympia to the Capitol steps. 

The state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has a rally to go with its "Muslim lobby day" .

Planned Parenthood has "teen lobby day."

The Washington Education Associaition has a "sing-along" on the Capitol steps in the mid afternoon -- probably not to sing "Kumbaya."

The Legislature, meanwhile, has a full day of committee hearings scheduled to discuss everything from the operating and capital budgets to genetically engieered foods to the implementation of the new legalized marijuana law.

It may be a holiday elsewhere, which explains how so many people can be available for those demonstrations, but around here, it's a work day.
