Gregoire to present 'go-home' budget proposal
Budget writers of each party's caucus in the House and Senate are expected to attend, too, according to a spokeswoman for the governor.
The meeting is scheduled to last an hour.
Today is the 29th day of a 30-day special session called to reach agreement on eliminating a $500 million hole in the state budget.
Lawmakers say they've pretty much worked out how to deal with the spending plan. The problem has been reaching agreement on three policy bills aimed at reforming a state pension plan, revamping health insurance plans for public school employees and the degree to which lawmakers can be required to balance future budgets.
