Lawmakers continue budget talks

Metro

OLYMPIA, Wash. – There’s still no deal on a state budget, but leaders in the Washington Legislature say an agreement is getting closer.

Senate Majority Leader Rodney Tom says there are a few details still to be worked out.

About 26,000 state employees have received notice that temporary layoffs will go into effect Monday unless a budget deal is reached by Sunday.
