OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The Latest on the budget proposal from state Senate Republicans (all times local):

10:00 a.m.

Senate Republicans have released a $43 billion, two-year budget that puts an additional $1.8 billion toward education in Washington state, paid for by a mix of increased revenue from a statewide property tax that ultimately would replace local district levies, a series of fund transfers from other accounts and spending cuts in some state programs.

The budget plan — which spends about $5 billion more than the current two-year budget — was released Tuesday, and it was to move quickly to the Senate Ways and Means Committee. The full chamber could vote on it as early as Thursday.

House Democrats are set to release their budget plan next week.

Lawmakers are in the midst of a 105-day legislative session that is scheduled to end April 23. They need to write a new two-year operating budget that satisfies a state Supreme Court order requiring them to fully fund the state's basic education system.

Senate Republicans in Washington state are set to release their two-year state budget proposal.

The plan is scheduled to be released Tuesday morning and will receive a public hearing in the afternoon. House Democrats will release their proposal next week.

Lawmakers are in the midst of a 105-day legislative session that is scheduled to end April 23. They need to write a new two-year operating budget that satisfies a state Supreme Court order requiring them to fully fund the state's basic education system.

There are differing ideas between the politically-divided chambers on how best to do that. House Democrats have passed an education plan but have not yet indicated how they'll pay for it. Senate Republicans previously passed a plan that seeks to replace local school levies with a statewide uniform rate earmarked for schools. The plan would raise the local school levy in some places, like Seattle, and decrease it in others.
