OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Washington Supreme Court on Monday confirmed it will wait until after the Legislature adjourns from its last 2015 special section to hear a progress report on how lawmakers have fixed the state education budget.

The court responded this week, saying it would wait until 15 days after the Legislature adjourns from its final special session. Lawmakers and the governor are hoping to finalize a state budget and make other necessary education policy decisions before the end of June.

The report to the court is supposed to explain why sanctions are not needed in connection with a contempt order associated with the 2012 McCleary decision on school funding.
