WA Lege Day 3: Inauguration Day

OLYMPIA -- Third and final day of pomp and ceremony at the state capital, as Jay Inslee and all other statewide elected officials from November get sworn in this morning.

After his late morning ceremony in the rotunda, Inslee addresses a joint session of the Legislature at noon, moves into the governor's office in the afternoon, plays a bit of hoops at the mansion before the Inaugural Ball which begins at 7 p.m.

It's as formally fancy as Olympia ever gets. Expect updates throughout the day.
