Budgets are big documents. News stories, generally, are not. So it's not surprising that many members of the Capitol press corps chose to focus on different aspects of the budget proposal released by the Senate Majority Coalition Caucus Monday.
Here's a roundup of some additional post-game coverage of the Senate budget announcement.
Austin Jenkins of Northwest News Network highlights about two dozen tax breaks included in the Senate plan, which he reports mostly are for businesses.
John Stang of Crosscut, a Seattle-based news website, focuses on how the Senate proposal doesn't include money for cost-of-living raises for teachers, something Gov. Jay Inslee has pushed for.
Meanwhile, Jerry Cornfield of the Herald in Everett notes that the Senate proposal doesn't fund two aerospace initiatives sought by Inslee, nor does it fund schools to the level the governor had hoped.
