The Washington State Legislature convenes on January 14, 2019. Bills will be introduced and hearings scheduled through most of the session. The idea here is to:
- Track bills that reflect Democratic values or impact Jefferson County.
- Let you know when important hearings occur.
- Show you how to watch remotely if you don’t want to drive all the way to Olympia.
- Show you how to comment on and influence bills that you have an interest in.
To watch hearings during or later go to TVW. To learn more about a bill, click on the document links below – these documents include bill numbers linked to their individual pages. You can click on “comment” to let the committee that is hearing the bill know what you think about the bill. The schedule is constantly being added to. For more details the Washington State Legislature has an information packed website.
Also the NW Progressive Institute has a bill tracker you may want to check out.
