No Special Session for Unfinished Bills

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - State lawmakers will not hold a special session this month to deal with unfinished bills.

Lawmakers adjourned their 105-day session at the end of April, but they had a few bills tied to the state budget that were left unfinished.

The big one was levy equalization for public schools. This means schools will continue to get an equal amount of funding.  Representative Larry Haler said this means schools in Eastern Washington won't be losing as much money as they feared.

Governor Gregoire said the bills can wait until September when legislators meet up again.
