Back to work: The state Senate will be back at it today in Olympia after passing a budget bill on Saturday. Trouble is the
Senate plan has big disagreements with what the House wants. Legislators are facing a couple of deadlines for getting their work done: the 30-day special session is supposed to end Tuesday, and the state needs to have some sort of budget by the end of the fiscal year, which is June 30. Sometimes deadlines can make things happen. But not always. Check back tomorrow.
Out to play: Let those legislators work (that’s what they get for not finishing during their regular session), while the rest of us go out to play. You might visit the Seattle waterfront from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday for some family entertainment including music, magic shows, Seafair clowns and demonstrations by Seattle firefighters. The Waterfront Whimsea Family Fun Day happens at Waterfront Park.
Walk the dog: Seattle Animal Shelter’s 14th annual Furry 5K run and walk is this morning at Seward Park. Shelter staff anticipates that this year’s Furry 5K will draw more than 3,000 people and 1,500 furry canines. The race will begin at 10 a.m. and will be followed by Pet-a-Palooza, a partnership with CBS Radio to feature entertainment, festive music, awards and an interactive vendor area.
See the Yankees: The Mariners and the New York Yankees play at Safeco Field Sunday at 1:10 p.m. Start early because there will be lots of traffic on the roads.
