OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The Washington Capitol was quiet Tuesday morning after demonstrations of the first day of the special session resulted in four arrests, three people stunned with a Taser and 30 trespassing citations.

Demonstrators who oppose spending cuts and demand higher taxes on the wealthy said they’d be back.

Washington State Patrol Sgt. J.J. Gundermann said troopers would re-evaluate their plans, but he said the patrol plans for demonstrations and has the resources.
