SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — Gov. Jay Inslee says he encouraged legislative leaders to work with him on coming up with a plan to comply with a Supreme Court order on education funding.

But there there's no plan yet to call lawmakers into special session until they reach agreement on a potential plan that could quickly be passed by both chambers.

Inslee met with leaders from the Senate and House and Attorney General Bob Ferguson Monday at SeaTac City Hall to discuss the latest development in the McCleary education funding lawsuit that has resulted in sanctions against the state of $100,000 a day.

Inslee said that lawmakers will go back and speak with their colleagues on potential actions, and that Inslee would hold another meeting with leaders in the coming days.
