WA Lege Day 58: Time is running out

OLYMPIA -- One would expect to see a budget agreement sometime today, considering the Legislature has less than 72 hours left in the session, and it takes time to take the agreement and turn it into a printed document on which the two chambers can vote.

No word as to when that might occur as both chambers convene, but stay tuned for updates.

Other than that, each chamber will be running through lists of bills on which they agree to various amendments the other chamber has made, so they "concur", or those which they think they other chamber has its collective head where the sun never shines, so they "do not concur" and send them back so that the other has a chance to see the light.
