Now either the Governor would have to convene this or the Legislature would have to get a 2/3rds vote in both houses to have a special session.
So here's the question (bold mine).
And this brings us to the "One Question" we've got for Litzow: Is he trying to get the Washington State Supreme Court—which is already holding him (along with the entire legislature) in contempt for failing to come up with a plan to fully fund K-12 education—to throw him in jail now? The legislature needs to come up with about $5 billion extra for K-12 education. The Court would certainly be stunned—after being told by the state's attorney at the September's contempt hearing (the state lost, obviously) that school funding was the #1 priority and was "on every legislator's lips" —to then see legislators come up with $12 billion for transportation and not education.
And second question, actually: How would that square with Litzow's caucus' mantra to "fund education first?"
Another question: what will the Legislature do if I-1351 passes AND they have McCleary on their plates?
