WA Lege Day 59: Deadline looms

OLYMPIA -- Somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 bills face a timely death today at 5 p.m.

Timely because if they don't pass the chamber where they were introduced, they are essentially dead for the session.

The Senate began work on their list of bills about 10 a.m. The House went into caucus to discuss which bills they want to take up first. The House spent quite a bit of time in caucus on Tuesday, so long that at one point there was discussion about which side had longer caucuses. . .  which led to some Twitter discussions that could have been taken more than one way.

The working theorem is: Double entendrees may rise in inverse proportion to the amount of legislation that is considered.
