Cut Off Week Arrives with Budget Proposals on the Side

The next three days here in Olympia will feature round the clock hearings as standing policy committees in the House and Senate scramble to pass legislation before their Wednesday Februrary 28 5:00 p.m. deadline.  Unless it is related to the state budget, most bills that do not pass by this date are considered dead for the 2007 legislative session.

Against this backdrop, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Education is expected to release its early learning, K-12 and higher education budget recommendations at a press conference during the lunch hour today.

As soon as we have specific information on these budget recommendations we will post detail on the Capitol Update Blog.
