OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Washington lawmakers are returning to the Capitol for a special legislative session to try and come to an agreement on a two-year state budget.

Budget writers in the House and Senate have met a few times since the regular session adjourned on April 28. But with no deal reached during their two-week interim, the special legislative session that starts at 9 a.m. Monday could take its full allotted 30 days, if not longer.

Gov. Jay Inslee has said that even while budget writers keep working toward a deal, he wants lawmakers to address policy issues during the overtime session, including a measure to strengthen the state's impaired driving laws in the wake of recent fatal accidents.
