Senate to hear Washington Voting Rights Act

Having passed the House in late January, the Senate Governmental Operations Committee is scheduled to hear HB 1413, the Washington Voting Rights Act, on Thursday, February 20. AWC and other local governments will again explain our concerns with the proposal, which include creating an unknown liability for local governments without a guarantee of fixing any perceived problems. Last year, the proposal passed the House but never made it out of committee in the Senate.
