Legislators shouldn’t be paid for work in special sessions

Gig HarborFebruary 5, 2014 

The front-page headline “Angel and Seaquist back in Olympia for legislative session” in the Jan. 15 paper really caught my attention.

Let’s make it a short session. If the legislators can’t get their business accomplished in the 60-day timeframe, then they shouldn’t be paid for extra sessions. Make them still until their work is finished.

The money saved would cover a multitude of needed projects.
