Olympia Update With Austin Jenkins: The 2012 regular session in Olympia ends at midnight tonight. Democrats may make a final push to pass a budget to avoid a special session. But they face an uphill battle in the Senate following last week's coup by Republicans and three Democrats. Austin Jenkins brings us an update.

Seattle Schools Battle Over Teach For America: The Seattle School Board is considering ending the district's contract with Teach for America after one year. Ann Dornfeld brings us a report.

Earthquake Lessons: This Sunday marks the one-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Following the quake in some places, you couldn't get gasoline for weeks to fuel cars and generators. Correspondent Tom Banse reports on why emergency planners say this region's fuel supply lines are vulnerable.
