Gov. Inslee orders state budget negotiations in his office
Gov. Jay Inslee has ordered a second special legislative session to convene Friday and told lawmakers working on the state's more than $38 billion two-year operating budget he wants them to move their negotiations to his office, starting Monday morning.
Lawmakers ended their first special session on Thursday, with a transportation budget, but still must agree on a state operating budget and a plan for answering the Washington Supreme Court on education spending.
