UPDATE 9:45 a.m. Senate leaders released a list of school-related measures that senators may consider on the floor today.

They include three Republican proposals that the majority describes as education-reform bills:

Original post from Jimmy Lovaas:

The Senate and House will hold floor sessions starting at 9 and 10 a.m., respectively. Both chambers will break for caucus and are likely to hold additional sessions in the afternoon or evening.

A bill that would eliminate the death penalty will receive a public hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee. Rep. Reuven Carlyle, D-Seattle, is House Bill 1504’s primary sponsor. The hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m.

The House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee will hold a joint meeting with the Technology and Economic Development Committee at 8 a.m. The committees will hear public testimony on Initiative 522, a proposal that would require retail food that has been produced with genetic engineering to be labeled accordingly.
