BREMERTON, Wash. —

State Rep. Jan Angel of Port Orchard missed part of the special session of the Legislature in Olympia because she was on a European cruise.

The Kitsap Sun reports she consulted with Republican party leaders before she left. They couldn't tell her when she would be needed, so she took the cruise.

Angel says she missed 32 votes for the trip and also because she was sick a day. She was back on the House floor Wednesday for the final day of the session.
