OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Special session begins at noon, though most lawmakers aren't likely to be back to the Capitol until Wednesday.

While special session technically starts at noon Monday, it's only "pro forma" on both Monday and Tuesday, meaning no floor votes or committee action will take place and lawmakers aren't required to be at the Capitol. However, Gov. Chris Gregoire is scheduled to meet Monday with Democratic and Republican leaders from the House and Senate.

Lawmakers couldn't agree on a supplemental budget plan before the regular 60-day legislative session ended at midnight Thursday.

Lawmakers are looking to close a budget gap of about $500 million through the end of the two-year budget cycle ending June 2013, as well as leaving several hundred million dollars in reserves.
