AWC priority public records bills pass the House!

AWC’s priority public records bills, HB 1594 and HB 1595, both passed the House on Friday with bipartisan votes. HB 1594 passed with a vote of 79-18. HB 1595 passed with a vote of 75-22.

AWC is especially grateful to the bills’ prime sponsors, Rep. Joan McBride (D-Kirkland) and Rep. Terry Nealey (R-Dayton), as well as Rep. Larry Springer (D-Kirkland), Rep. John Koster (R-Arlington), Rep. Tana Senn (D-Mercer Island) and many others for their help getting the bills through the House.

Please take the time to thank those local legislators who supported the bill.

The two bills now move to the Senate where they will likely go to the Senate State Government Committee for consideration. Now is the time to talk to your Senators about the importance of keeping these bills moving.
