Washington lawmakers were met with loud protests Monday on the first day of a 30-day special legislative session called to close a $2 billion state budget gap. State troopers said most protesters made their opposition to budget cuts known peacefully, but troopers used stun guns on three protesters, arrested four and handed out no-trespassing warnings to 30 more who refused to leave the Legislative Building before being escorted or carried out.
