Special Session could end Monday

Posted: Updated:

Some legislators say the Special Session in Olympia could end as soon as tomorrow.

The House and Senate recently made an agreement in principal on the majority of the $800-million revenue package after almost 30 days of debating which taxes to increase and where spending increases should be.

Today we talked with Senator Jerome Delvin. In his 16 years in the Legislature he tells us he's never experienced a special session like this.

"This is the first time we've had a special session I can remember during a specific sessions likes this. Usually we come into Olympia, we rearrange the budget to fit caseload increases or decreases, then we go home because it's an election year," Delvin said.  

Delvin says he's surprised it has taken this long for the Special Session to come to a close as lawmakers are working to fix the 2.8 billion dollar budget deficit.
