OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Lawmakers continue to move toward agreement on a supplemental budget, but are still split over differences on a variety of bills.

It was originally thought that they could possibly vote a budget bill out of the Senate Ways and Means Committee Friday night. But committee chairman Sen. Ed Murray later said they would not move on that bill yet that because both sides are still working out final details of agreement.

The committee held a public hearing on the budget bill and several others, including a controversial one dealing with health insurance for Washington's public school employees. The committee approved several bills on Friday, including a four-year balanced budget measure.
