Washington State Legislative Update 2/2


Committee hearings are essentially over. If a bill you support didn’t make it out of committee, it’s probably dead for this year.

The legislature’s site for tracking all bills is here:  Bill Information

How you can watch and participate in the legislative process from the comfort of your home.

 

Some important bills:

Senate Bill 6086 – Protecting the state’s marine waters from the release of nonnative finfish from marine finfish aquaculture sites.

HB 2431 and SB 6456. This would hand land use oversight to military commanders in areas near bases. Theoretically it could hand over veto power on land use regs to anywhere in Washington State! Supported by a governor (yes, Inslee) committee that is mainly the Chamber of Commerce in many military counties.  – Did not make out of committee.
