State Senate Drops Sales Tax from Legislation

As reported in the Seattle Times the State Senate has dropped the 1% sales tax from their budget. The Capital Record blog has done a good job of pulling different reports together, here:
Update 1: The House Democratic Caucus blog suggests that if everyone can agree on this package, special session could be wrapped up by this weekend.

Update 2: Here’s Rachel La Corte’s updated story. It indicates there could be agreement tonight.

Those updates have links, you can click them at The Capital Record, their blogger, Niki Reading, deserves the clicks.

It is the first blog that I get a feed from on the righhand side of my blog page.
