Today in Olympia: Deadlines for bills, budget near

Capitol ColumnsToday (April 17) is the last day for the State House and Senate to consider opposite house bills.

Regular session is slated to end in just over two weeks on April 28.

After today, the main business left to accomplish is negotiating the state budget. Both the House and Senate have passed operating budgets (read President Young’s statement’s here and here).

For more analysis of both budget proposals and how they affect UW, read the OPB blog.
