Voting Rights Act gets public hearing

HB 1745, Rep. Luis Moscoso (D-Mountlake Terrace), establishing a Washington State Voting Rights Act, had a public hearing Thursday, February 5 in the House State Government Committee. AWC’s Victoria Lincoln was on hand to provide testimony outlining some of the outstanding concerns AWC has with the legislation. You can read about those in last week’s Bulletin here.

In addition to Victoria’s testimony the counties, school directors and a few cities voiced both support and concerns around the bill.

Next week the Senate will hear its version of the bill, SB 5668, Sen, Cyrus Habib (D-Seattle), in the Senate Government Operations & Security Committee on February 10 at 10 am.
