Tuesday is a milestone day in the Legislature's 60-day session, and lawmakers are facing a key deadline. Policy-related bills must pass out of their house of origin — House or Senate — by 5 p.m.

Olympia correspondent Austin Jenkins joined KNKX Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick to talk about it.
