Happy holidays from the House Democrats

Snow on capitol campus, Feb. 2011
Expect light blogging from us over the next week as we try to get in as much quality time with our loved ones as we can before returning to our legislative duties in the New Year. 
Although things are fairly quiet around here these days, there is still activity taking place behind the scenes.  The special session adjourned on December 14, but House budget writers have continued to work on an agreement to close the remaining shortfall in the state budget.  Also, bills for the 2012 Session (which begins January 9) are being prefiled this month.  The coming weeks will bring much debate about how best to move our state forward, but we are encouraged by some of the recent economic news here in Washington.
In the meantime, all of us at the House Democratic Caucus wish you and yours the joy of the season.
