Business license bills ready for possible action

EHB 2005 was moved out of the Senate Rules Committee and is ready for possible floor action. The bill includes an amendment by the Senate Ways & Means Committee changing the timeline to phase in cities to partner with the state’s business licensing system from 10 years to five years, if funding is appropriated.

ESSB 5777 was also moved out of the House Rules Committee and is awaiting further action. Its provisions are almost identical to EHB 2005, with the exception of the timeline to phase in cities to partner with the business license system, which is 10 years in the House Finance amended version of the bill.

For more information on the bills, see last week’s Legislative Bulletin.
