WA Lege Day 58: Expect lots of vote because clock is ticking

OLYMPIA — Both chambers are expected to be working feverishly to pass legislation throughout the day ahead of tomorrow's key deadline that will render many unpassed bills dead.

Plans to bring up universal background checks for gun purchases hit a major stumbling block Monday when supporters couldn't round up the necessary votes, and the House shifted to health care legislation. No word yet on whether background checks and some of the other gun legislation will make an appearance on today's House calendar.

Rep. Chris Hurst, D- Enumclaw, is scheduled to announce a plan to establish the state's recreational marijuana market at lunchtime.
