Voting Rights Act passes House

This week, the Washington Voting Rights Act, HB 1413, passed the full House. Because the House approved the measure last session, it was not heard in committee before coming up for a vote on the House floor, and like last year, the proposal is expected to receive a cool reception in the Senate. AWC will continue to express concerns with the proposal while discussing alternatives with the bill’s proponents and other local government groups.
