Little activity as lawmakers end 3rd week of special session
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington lawmakers are closing out their third week of special session, and so far, have little to show for it. While there have been some House and Senate floor votes to re-pass bills that were previously approved by individual chambers in the regular session, and a few committee hearings, for the most part, the Capitol is empty except for budget negotiators and a handful of other lawmakers who are meeting regularly as part of an education funding task force.
