The official end of Washington's legislative session is April 23. The Senate bill by Senator Karen Keiser that would close Fircrest School has been held back from a vote in the Senate so far, but we can't breathe that sigh of relief because it may well be dragged out at the very last minute as "necessary to implement the budget." Now, why would that be so? Because there are some legislators who have the lame idea to empty Fircrest out so they can sell the land to fund education and pass the budget. "Never-mind about those pesky residents with intellectual developmental disabilities! They'll be cheaper out in the "community" anyway."
