We're into overtime and still no budget from the Washington Legislature. "Real people" gathered outside the Senate Office Building and asked that the legislature do its job. Also, state employees from across the state took to social media to challenge their elected representatives to "walk a day in our shoes" and see what we do to provide the services for our citizens. Federation members asked for an update from Congressman Denny Heck on possible impacts on state programs from the proposed federal budget. And, if the president wants support for one of the programs he promised during the campaign he needs to look no further than America's workers to rebuild the infrastructure.
