State Legislature Convenes In Olympia

Jan 14, 2013

Today marks the start of the Washington State Legislature’s 2013 regular session. Lawmakers have their sights set on education as a top priority — they'll be looking at both funding and measuring student success. They’ll also be working with a new governor, Jay Inslee, and a new balance of power in the state Senate. Publicola's Josh Feit joins us with a preview.

Also this hour: IMDb TV editor Melanie McFarland joins us to assess who won and who got snubbed at the Golden Globes. Plus, AP sportswriter Tim Booth joins us to wrap up the Seahawks' playoff loss to Atlanta and offer thoughts on next season.
