Washington Voting Rights Act gets another hearing

The House version of the Washington Voting Rights Act, HB 1413, will be heard in the Senate Governmental Operations Committee next week. The committee previously heard the Senate companion, SB 5473, but did not pass it. AWC will again express our concerns that this proposal imposes ongoing liability and costs for cities with no guarantee that it addresses the issues raised by proponents.

Our new CityVision article on this bill can be found here.
