(Olympia, WA)  --  A group of Democratic and Republican lawmakers hope the Washington State Supreme Court will respond positively to a required progress report on the Legislature's efforts to fully fund public education.  The Everett "Herald" reports the lawmakers approved the report yesterday and intend to file it on May 18th.  The report says the Legislature fulfilled the high court's mandate during the 2016 session and passed a plan for ensuring that a constitutional means of funding public schools is in place by 2018.  The lawmakers disagree on whether their actions during this year's session will be enough to convince the Supreme Court to lift a contempt order and end sanctions totaling nearly 28-million dollars in fines.
