THE MASON COUNTY booth at the Western Washington Fair in Puyallup received a first place in arrangement and a second place in the county exhibit category. ist "cting ule Is away with sary delay in e people's achieving within the 24 Thomas L. house submitted SChedule for that calls recess itself 's Plan would with his on January Would then resolution, meeting to )f most new would February 7. agreeing to devote most of its efforts toward accomplishing redistricting before midnight, February 24. With redistricting then out of the way, the Legislature would convene again on the morning of February 25, able to turn its full attention to acting upon the earlier-introduced legislation, as well as new bills. The session would then end on or before March 31, within the 60-day constitutional time limit. Rep. Copeland's suggested session schedule came in the wake of a recent call by King County Republican legislators for Gov. Evans to convene the Legislature later than the date originally planned, hopefully to force early and complete agreement on redistricting proposals. pos "By convening for a full week prior to recessing, the Legislature could complete the necessary business of organizing, adopting rules, committee assignments, hiring sufficient staff, printing and distribution of bills, memorials and resolutions, committee meeting, etc.," said Rep. Copeland. "At the end of the first week, legislators would go home, thus doing away with the unnecessary expense of keeping them in session while political maneuvering on the redistricting plan possibly obstructs conducting our normal legislative business. The redistricting committees would continue to meet, and have proposals ready for the legislators to review .and vote on when we reconvene," he added. "While I know this suggestion of a recess during a session is a departure from the normal course in our state, it has occurred with marked effectiveness in other states. "The Washington State Legislature has an opportunity to demonstrate to the people that it can improve its efficiency and effectiveness in conducting the people's bsiness, and still do so within the time allotted by our State Constitution," Rep. Copeland added. "If my plan is adopted by Gov. Evans and both houses of the Legislature, I am convinced t his session will result in significantly more work being accomp!ished at a great savings to the taxpayers," he concluded.
