HB 1512, regarding use of Brady Lists, was WACOPS’ top priority policy bill this year and proved to be our biggest disappointment. It passed out of the House 98-0 with the support of the prosecutor’s association, WAPA. The Chairman of the Senate Law & Justice Committee (Sen. Padden-Spokane) gave the bill a hearing but did not call it up for a vote. Four of the seven Senators on the Committee were co-sponsors of the companion bill, SB 5589, and six of the seven members had committed to voting for the bill without amendments. An amendment was offered by the State Patrol Mgmt. that not only would have gutted the bill, but would have made current law even worse for LE officers placed on the prosecutor’s list. Given the choice of having the amendment adopted or have the bill die, we choose to let it go this year. We will work it again next year.
