Washington’s 2016 regular legislative session will adjourn Thursday, unless a special session extends the deadline. As the countdown to the midnight deadline begins, TVW will air back-to-back live interviews with more than 20 lawmakers starting at 8
Anita Kissée, host of The Impact, will sit down with Gov. Jay Inslee and legislative leaders from both sides of the aisle. Guests include Sen. Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville, Sen. Sharon Nelson, D-Maury Island, Rep. Pat Sullivan, D-Covington, and Rep. Dan Kristiansen, R-Snohomish.
The show also includes panel discussions with lawmakers on a variety of issues — including education, transportation, natural resources, capital budget and corrections. A budget panel will discuss the latest progress on the supplemental budget.
Plus, Jim Camden, Olympia bureau chief for The Spokesman-Review and blogger for Spin Control, and Jordan Schrader, a state government reporter for The News Tribune, will offer their take on the events of the last 60 days and what to watch for as the session comes to a close.
