Bill requiring security of violent and sexual offenders in hospitals scheduled for public hearing

SB 5593, Sen. Bruce Dammeier (R-Puyallup), would require law enforcement to accompany violent and sexual offenders brought to a hospital while in their custody. It has been scheduled for a public hearing in the House Judiciary Committee March 17 at 10 am.

This bill is the result of negotiations and compromise between hospitals and law enforcement to address concerns of both. AWC is supportive of this compromise measure. Read more about SB 5593 in last week’s Bulletin.
