Spec Sess Day 29: Tick, tick, tick

OLYMPIA -- Two days.

That's what's left in the oh-so special session. With each chamber having passed a budget in the last several days we all  know the parameters of a possible deal. So the thing to watch for will be some sign of movement from each side on both the budget and the policy or "reform" bills.

Can they be done with everything by midnight tomorrow? Only the great Karnak could say for sure. But if one were betting this like a football game, Spin Control would offer its standard advice on the length of legislative sessions.

Always bet the over. Never bet the under.
