Inslee to Legislature: Pick up the pace

OLYMPIA -- Time is running out for the work the Legislature needs to do in the special session, Gov. Jay Inslee said today.

Inslee called a committee vote earlier in the morning on legislation go fix a problem with the state's estate tax "good progress", adding he expects the Legislature to reach an agreement on the bill in the next couple of days.

"However, there is still much that remains to be done and time is running out," he said. Today is Day 17 of the 30-day Special Session.

"If budget negotiators are able to reach key compromises in the next week, we will be able to finish on time," he said in a press release. "But negotiators need to pick up the pace to make it happen."
