(Olympia, WA)  --  There are early indications Washington lawmakers on both sides of the aisle will continue to have trouble agreeing on how to fund public education in the state.  Democrats and Republicans are accusing each other of being unwilling to compromise to arrive at a solution to adhere to the state Supreme Court mandate to have a funding formula in place by 2018.  Each party is working on its own plan, and Governor Jay Inslee has a plan to use tax increases to come up with more than four-billion dollars to fund K-through-12 schools.  Motions put forward by the Joint Education Funding Task Force, based on months of hearings, each failed yesterday on four-to-four votes.
