No Locke on SB6453

Wed, Mar 31, 2004, 7:06 pm  //  John Servais

Gov. Locke is not scheduled to act on the primary election bill today. This the 20th day since the legislature adjourned and supposedly the last day he can act on a bill. SB6453 is missing from his full day of bill actions. My guess is he plans some live or special event on it this evening. Perhaps he plans to not act and let the entire bill become law. Perhaps he is still 'talking' to the party bosses about a partial veto versus their pending lawsuit.

Let the parties use the caucuses

Locke is working _with_ the party machines

Today's Bham Herald editorial is well meaning but hopelessly ignorant of the process in Olympia. Naive may be a better word to describe their editorial board. Gee, goes…

Delays are due to secret bargaining

Will Gov Locke veto the 'Top 2' primary process and allow the Montana process to become law? Probably, but not necessarily. He may sign the entire bill -…

Expect a partial veto

The 'Top 2' primary election bill has a poison pill in it. Our legislators tonight have changed just three words that will allow the Republican and Democratic party…

They always say they “suspended the rules”

SB6453 passed the House late this evening by a vote of 51 to 46. Now - if Gov. Locke will just sign it. More when we have more…

Traffic and Western Washington University

If WWU gets their way, $20 million in state taxes will be spent on jack-hammering out good roads and building new ones a hundred yards away. No increase…
