Spin Control: Kids get restless, Senate suspenseful

OLYMPIA – Gov. Jay Inslee apparently is not a follower of W.C. Fields’ advice against working with children or animals. He may want to reconsider, at least when it comes to children.

The bill would address a rule connected to how the state decides which schools get money for new construction.
