House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan, second from left, D-Covington, talks about the House Democrats’ proposed supplemental budget on Tuesday as he sits with Rep. Kristine Lytton, left, D-Anacortes, Rep. Timm Ormsby, second from right, D-Spokane, and Rep. June Robinson, right, D-Everett, during a news conference at the Capitol in Olympia, Wash.
