Baumgartner to hold meeting before session

Before heading to Olympia for the start of the special session, state Sen. Mike Baumgartner wants to hear from constituents. He's holding a "mobile office" session in Airway Heights on his way out of town.

"I want to answer questions and receive feedback about what is on the minds of the voters," he said in a press release.

Baumgartner will be at the Buckhorn Inn, 13311 W. Sunset Highway, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Thursday. That means he'll miss the official start of the session, which is scheduled to kick off at 9 a.m. But Thursday is expected to be "pro forma" in the chambers, so he won't miss much.

Gov. Jay Inslee announced Tuesday afternoon that he was calling the Legislature into a special session on Thursday morning.
