Law and justice bills to look out for – contact your legislator and voice your opposition today

Last week the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC) released a legislative alert detailing bills it opposes. AWC is also opposed to these bills and asks that you contact your legislators to convey your concerns today. Those bills still alive after Friday’s fiscal cutoff include:

  • SB 5751 raises the standard of proof in civil asset forfeiture in drug cases from a preponderance of the evidence to clear, cogent and convincing. The bill is on the Senate floor. Please contact your senators to voice your opposition to this bill.
  • HB 1639 diminishes the open view doctrine by requiring a warrant for most uses of unmanned aerial vehicles. The bill is in the House Rules Committee. Please contact committee members to voice your opposition to this bill.

For questions regarding any of these pieces of legislation, please contact AWC’s Candice Bock.
