OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Members of the state’s House of Representatives have been ordered back to Olympia next week as the latest special session draws near its end.

The Olympian reports that legislative leaders met again Saturday to try to hash out a state budget, and will meet again on Monday.

Lawmakers are trying to close a $500 million budget gap. But have disagreed on how to do it. This special session followed a regular 60-day session, although most lawmakers have stayed home during the latest legislative overtime.

The House is set to meet on Wednesday for caucus meetings and possible floor votes. Senators may do the same, but are also considering phone meetings.
