Gov. Chris Gregoire is acting on more than 100 bills today, likely releasing most of the hostages she has been holding as encouragement for lawmakers to reach a budget deal.

It’s a sign of progress in budget talks that went longer than usual Wednesday, about four hours, and resume today.

Gregoire’s office said there is no deal but that she and budget writers felt good about their progress.

While there could still be vetoes, expect signatures on most bills. The lineup includes a resumption of an abolished tax break for TV and film shoots in Washington.
