Voting Rights Act passes House, moves to Senate

HB 1745, the Washington Voting Rights Act, passed out of the House on a party-line vote Thursday, March 5, and will now move to the Senate for consideration. Its companion, SB 5668, is still in the Senate Rules Committee.

Coming off the floor one amendment was hung on HB 1745, a striker that made only technical corrections to the bill.

As noted in earlier Bulletin articles, HB 1745 was amended in committee with changes AWC supports. However, concerns remain. You can read about the changes and concerns here.
