WA Lege Day 40: 66.66667 percent done

OLYMPIA — The Legislature hits the two-thirds  mark in its 60-day session today with a relatively light work, fairly typical for Friday, work schedule.

Some hearings in the morning and early afternoon, nothing late in the day to get in the way of legislators heading home for the weekend.

Gov. Jay Inslee is in the other Washington for the National Governors Association meeting, and has meetings over the weekend with Obama administration officials. A good bet is he'll bring up a waiver to the No Child Left Behind rules so the state doesn't lose about $40 million in federal funds.

Full meeting schedule can be found inside the blog.
