OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Lawmakers continue to work toward agreement on two-year budget, but will adjourn Sunday knowing they'll have to return for a special session.

Leaders in both the House and Senate seemed to resign themselves Saturday to the prospect of an overtime session, with the regular 105-day period coming to an end Sunday night. A spokesman for Gov. Jay Inslee said that no decision had been made on when a special session may start.

Lawmakers are tasked with patching a projected budget deficit of more than $1.2 billion for the next two-year budget, not counting additional money needed for a court-ordered requirement that they increase funding to basic education.

The two chambers have taken different approaches to balance state spending and increase funding for education.
