The Week in Review: 2013 Session’s Midway Point

Capitol Hallway

Capitol Hallway leading to the House Floor.

Today is Day 54 of the 105-day 2013 session of the State Legislature, putting us just past the midway point.

For most of the week, members spent their time on the floor of their respective chambers, debating and voting on bills.

The majority of the buzz, both around the Capitol and in the media, was related to a package of education bills that advanced in the State Senate.

A proposal by several State Senators to layoff several State Supreme Court Justices also made its way into the headlines.

In other Olympia news:

Next Wednesday (March 13) is “Floor Cutoff,” or the last day to consider bills in their house of origin.
