With a news team consisting of three University of Washington journalism majors and one Washington State University graduate, the association will provide coverage of the capitol through the end of the current long session, scheduled to last 105 days.
This year legislators are expected to adopt the two-year operating state budget as well as the two-year capital budget, which funds many local projects throughout the state.
