There’s a break in the Washington legislative action this weekend, so several Spokane-area senators and representatives will be back in their home districts to hold town hall meetings.
The break comes from the Legislature passing a major deadline for voting bills out of one chamber, and not yet reaching a key point in crafting the next biennium’s budget, which is the state economic forecast that comes out March 17.
Here’s a list of the Saturday meetings scheduled.
