Special Session Day 21: Senate in, House out

OLYMPIA -- The Senate returns from its long weekend to a morning of caucusing, and possibly voting, although the schedule for bills probably won't be available until post-caucus.

Heavy lifting of the day might be done in the Ways and Means Committee, which has an afternoon hearing on fees for teacher certificates, proposed changes for quality education and consolidating natural resources agencies. They're also scheduled to vote on whether to send to the floor the latest plan on the state's liquor distribution system and some other government "streamlining."

House is in pro forma, which is to say, they aren't around until Tuesday.
