Legislative Committee Calls to Action

Recently, you were asked to write to your representatives to show support for a selected set of bills. What a great response! Since then, HB1169 has passed the house! If passed by the Senate, this bill will begin to fix our sentencing structure. Thank you for your efforts and for being part of this victory. If you haven’t yet reached out to your representatives, there is still time to take action!

With just three weeks left in this session, there is more work to be done. This week we ask everyone to email your representatives in support of the bills listed below. They have all been passed in their house of origin. We need to act now in full support so that our representatives know to move them on to the governor’s desk to be signed into law. 

Make sure to include your name and address at the end of each email.

ESHB1169-

Dear senator,

liz.lovelett@leg.wa.gov, keith.wagoner@leg.wa.gov; ron.muzzall@leg.wa.gov 

It is time to pass ESHB1169 and begin to fix our sentencing structure to be tougher on criminals committing drug related crimes. Please give this bill priority and get it passed. (Sentencing enhancements)

SB5042-

Dear representative,

dave.paul@leg.wa.gov, greg.gilday@leg.wa.gov, deborah.lekanoff@leg.wa.gov, alex.ramel@leg.wa.gov  carolyn.eslick@leg.wa.gov robert.sutherland@leg.wa.gov 

It’s time we regulate the planning process for Fully Contained Community by closing the FCC loophole in the growth management act. Please help pass SB5042.

ESSB5078-

Dear representative,

dave.paul@leg.wa.gov, greg.gilday@leg.wa.gov, deborah.lekanoff@leg.wa.gov, alex.ramel@leg.wa.gov  carolyn.eslick@leg.wa.gov robert.sutherland@leg.wa.gov 

It is time we restrict high capacity magazines for assault rifles and protect public safety. There is no reason anyone needs a 30 round magazine to go hunting. Let’s pass ESSB5078!

ESSB5974-

Dear representative,

dave.paul@leg.wa.gov, greg.gilday@leg.wa.gov, deborah.lekanoff@leg.wa.gov, alex.ramel@leg.wa.gov  carolyn.eslick@leg.wa.gov robert.sutherland@leg.wa.gov

SHB1876-

Dear senator,

liz.lovelett@leg.wa.gov, keith.wagoner@leg.wa.gov; ron.muzzall@leg.wa.gov 

It’s time we require more transparency to budget impact of ballot measure, levys, tax or fee and have a fiscal impact statement for them. Please put your full support behind SHB1876.
