OLYMPIA -- It's the final day of the First Special Session. Or possibly the eve of the Second Special Session. Take your pick.

Legislators don't have much incentive to pass anything today unless they could pass it in both chambers, because at the beginning of a special session everything still hanging fire goes back to its "house of origin", which means they'd just have to pass it again.

Gov. Jay Inslee has a 10:30 a.m. press conference "to discuss the special session", which means he could issue the call for the second session at that point, or urge them to get as much done as possible before midnight before the call goes out.
