Eye On Olympia


Trying to get a weekend story done, so I'll let others do the talking:

-Joe Turner, on why big tuition hikes at Washington's state colleges may be in the works,

-Rich Nafziger, on why that would be a bad, bad idea,

-Jim Camden, on how Peter Goldmark is the first Eastern Washingtonian to win statewide office in "...well, a really long time,"

-Jim Camden again, on the looming applets and cotlets battle in Olympia,

-Brad Shannon, on lawmakers who've battled cancer,

and, last but not least, Randy Stapilus, declaring that the most influential Washingtonian of 2008 was...Dino Rossi. (Hat tip to Adam Wilson.)

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
