(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington state lawmakers are seeking to tap into the state's "rainy-day" fund to mitigate the homeless situation.  A group of 21 Democratic state senators are supporting a proposal to use 300-million dollars from the Budget Stabilization fund for services to aid the homeless.  One of those senators, Sharon Nelson of Vashon Island, told KING-5 the homeless crisis is a statewide problem.  The legislators say they need nine more votes to garner the three-fifths majority needed to tap into the fund.
