Monday is opening day of the 2013 Washington State Legislature. Ceremonies start at noon, but tune in to TVW early to watch exclusive interviews with several legislative leaders. Watch on TV, or streamed live on the web here.
From 10 a.m. to noon, Anita Kissee (host of The Impact) will be reporting live from the Capitol building.
Guests include Senators David Frockt, Rodney Tom, Mark Schoesler and Andy Billig. In addition, we’ll be interviewing Representatives Ross Hunter, J.T. Wilcox, Pat Sullivan, Gary Alexander and Cyrus Habib.
Lt. Gov. Brad Owen, Secretary of State-elect Kim Wyman and Schools Superintendent Randy Dorn will also be dropping by the set. Plus, we’ll have a press panel with Capitol reporters Jim Camden of The Spokesman-Review and Jordan Schrader of The News Tribune.
At noon, TVW will be live gavel-to-gavel with opening day activities.
We’ll have coverage here on the blog, and a recap of what happened that day on Legislative Review at 6:30 p.m. on TVW. The show airs every night during the legislative session, providing a 15 minute recap of the day’s legislative highlights.
