The Washington state legislative special session that pitched itself into the midnight hours has ended. A little after 6:00 a.m. this morning an agreement on the budget was reached and ended the session.
The budget passed the house by a 64-34 margin and passed the senate by a 44-2 vote.
According to The Olympia Report, Gov. Christine Gregoire had called for the “second session to begin immediately when the midnight deadline came and went without an accord.”
