OLYMPIA -- It's another cut-off day in the Legislature. . . which does not mean we'll be seeing legislators walking around in old jeans that have been shortened to shorts.
This is the day that bills with some kind of fiscal impact must get out of the committees that handle the spending of state money, or else.
Or else what? Generally speaking, they're dead for the session. There are a few parliamentary procedures to revive them, but in most cases, you can forget about them.
The agendas for the Senate Ways and Means and House Appropriations committees are fluid right now, so rather than post agendas which essentially have nothing in them, we'll give you a link to the Web page where the schedules are posted as soon as they become solid.
