WA Lege Day 53: Past the half-way point

OLYMPIA -- If the Legislature were a transcontinental flight, someone would be telling the pilot "We're past the point of no return." Dramatic as that sounds, it's really just  the point when you are closer to the place you're landing than the place you left.

It's Day 53 of a 105-day session, so we are closer to the end than the beginning -- provided the Legislature can break with recent history and avoid a special session.

Sticking to a one-day-at-a-time focus, however, both chambers will likely be voting on bills off an on throughout the day, and possibly into the evening. Schedules aren't known until shortly before the bills come up.
