(Olympia, WA)  --  Education will be among the issues at the forefront during the 2016 session of the Washington Legislature, which gets underway today.  Lawmakers are under pressure by the state Supreme Court to come up with a plan this session to fully fund K-through-12 schools.  The federal government is also pressuring the state to upgrade safety measures and security at state mental facilities, including Western State Hospital in Lakewood.  Governor Jay Inslee also hopes to increase a series of taxes and eliminate some tax breaks to help pay for basic education and teacher salaries.
