RT @AustinJenkinsN3: #waleg ethics board grappling with the definition of "infrequent" when it comes to lobbyist-paid meals. Also questions about reporting meals

May 27, 2014

RT @WA_News_Junkie: If this #waleg OIC fiasco was not big enough, the actual ruling with Childrens Hospital is a huge story in and of itself.

May 20, 2014

RT @WA_News_Junkie: Summary. Did OIC's #1 guy try to influence an AL Judge in a HUGE case with Children's Hospital?Then putting her on leave. That's BIG. #waleg

RT @BradShannon2: Chief Justice Justice Madsen says #waleg gets 2015 legis session to comply with state Constitution on K-12 funding or sanctions are in play.

Aug 14, 2014

WA Supreme Court rules (twice) that #waleg cuts to public employee pensions were legal. (Ruling other way could've cost $10B over 25 years.)

Aug 06, 2014

RT @cruickshank: What an amazing letter to parents VT sent under NCLB rules. Hope WA follows suit. #waedu #waleg education.vermont.gov/documents/EDU-…

Aug 01, 2014

On @YesEarlySuccess v. city #earlyed lawsuit: at state level, @secstatewa says #waleg can present intiative as either-or w/ own alternative.

May 29, 2014

What do you need to make adequate ed funding happen? Rep. @rosshunter: "I need a functioning Senate." #waleg #waedu #mccleary

May 29, 2014

.@washingtonea: #waleg efforts to fund education are there, but "we need to start running." #waedu

May 29, 2014

Rep. @rosshunter: I'm responsible, and #waleg is responsible, for getting schools enough money to build a good edu system. #waedu

May 29, 2014

Interesting point from @edvoters' Ordway: "you can't write law" in #waleg to make sure each kid's specific needs are met. #waedu #mccleary

May 29, 2014

Rep. @rosshunter gets a laugh: We need to spend enough money for a maybe-average-competency educator to do a good job. #waedu #waleg

May 29, 2014

Rep @rosshunter: In '30s, "basic ed" meant 8th gr. In the '80s, it's high school. #mccleary means #waleg needs to meet new challenge. #waedu

Apr 29, 2014

Sorry, I misquoted @rosshunter in an earlier tweet... He said "This is a *clear report about a partial plan." #waedu #waleg

Apr 29, 2014

Mincing no words, @waOSPI says #waleg fell down on #McCleary report: It "says very little, and is far from complete. It isn’t even a plan."

Apr 29, 2014

Rep. Chad @Magendanz: "The report does clarify quite a bit of funding details" in #waleg ed funding plan. #waedu #mccleary

Apr 29, 2014

.@rosshunter: Interim committee can't pass laws, and laws are best way to demonstrate agreement/plan to State Supremes. #waleg #waedu

Apr 29, 2014

At risk of comparing Rep. @rosshunter's quip with legal order, WA Supreme Court asked for "complete plan" on ed funding by tomorrow. #waleg

Apr 29, 2014

As put by @rosshunter, #waleg panel delivered "complete report of partial plan" to Court for how they'll beef up #waedu funding. #mccleary

Apr 29, 2014

We're underway in Olympia as #waleg committee charged with reporting to state's High Court on schol funding.

Apr 24, 2014

RT @cruickshank: Worth remembering that CA does not have an NCLB waiver either. State is still doing just fine without it. #waleg #waedu

Apr 09, 2014

.@waOSPI praises @OurVoiceWEA vote to support ballot initiative to lower class sizes, says #waleg needs to find funding for it. #waedu

Mar 14, 2014

Always good chatting with @afhyslop... she pointed out some ways how U.S. Dept. of Ed might flex a bit on WA's #NCLB waiver. #waedu #waleg

Clarifying: #fishconsumption rule won't be final until #waleg takes up bill in 2015 session. Could be before session ends 4/26 or later
