Do they teach separation of powers in Washington?

Nominee for Most Crucial:

The state's high court, however, already is fining the legislature $100,000 a day until it comes up with a new formula to comply with the court's 2012 McCleary ruling that said the state's public schools are entirely way too dependent on local property taxes and that the state must pour millions more dollars into the formula. In the meantime, the fines are going into a special account for education.  Legislators are stumped on finding where to get that money from and coming up with a way to equally distribute it across the state. Most crucial is finding a way to boost teacher pay. 

Remarkable. What's the budget item number for Supreme Court salaries? I'd start there and then move to their retirement. This is just entirely way too much.
