The Democratic governor will announce a plan at 11 a.m. Thursday to bridge the state’s budget shortfall and put new money toward public schools to start complying with a court mandate.

Rather than a full budget plan, Inslee’s proposal will build on the one released last year by his predecessor, Gov. Chris Gregoire.

His plan is expected to raise revenue by closing tax breaks. We will find out Thursday whether it also includes other kinds of revenue, such as extending tax increases on beer and businesses that are due to expire.
