OLYMPIA — Drums, shouting and expletives reverberated in the marble halls of the state Capitol on Monday as hundreds of protesters disrupted the first day of the Legislature's special session.

After storming a hearing room earlier in the day, protesters refused to leave the Capitol building Monday night until being hauled out one by one by state troopers.
