No vote on HB 1307 today; Friday remains a possibility

The Senate Judiciary Committee adjourned its meeting today without voting on House Bill 1307 -- or any bills, for that matter. The committee has one more chance to vote on the bill on Friday, although there are many bills for them to consider.

Before adjourning, committee chair Sen. Adam Kline (D-Seattle) said he plans to request more time to act on the bills in his committee. As of now, if the bill does not get voted on by Friday, it dies.

We'll keep you posted.

UPDATE, 7 P.M.: The committee will convene at noon or when the floor debate ends, whichever comes first, on Friday. Executive session will be first; if the bill is to be voted on, it will be done in that session by 1:30 p.m., when the public hearing on six more bills is scheduled to begin.
