WaLeg Day 1: Noon opening, 1:30 p.m. grilling of Corrections

OLYMPIA -- The 2016 session of the Washington Legislature begins at noon Monday, followed quickly by some committee hearings.

Among the first up: Senate Law and Justice will hold a "work session" -- sometimes code word for a grilling -- with Department of Corrections officials about the computer problems that led to thousands of inmates getting release dates that were earlier than they should have. 

Budget committees have work sessions on the governor's supplemental budget request.
