Week 4 of the legislative session is coming to a close in Olympia. This week’s legislative update will give you an update on the WACOPS priority legislative agenda. The agenda was developed by the membership and distributed to all members at the beginning of the session. The bills that are on that agenda are the top priority of WACOPS and it informs our work as we lobby for legislation.
There are several other bills that WACOPS supports and opposes and we are testifying and making our position known on those bills too. A complete list of bills, with our position, is attached on the bill report sheet.
As you become aware of other issues that affect our statewide membership, please contact us so we can add them to the list. Remember, if members of your guild are coming to Olympia to testify on specific legislation, we are happy to accompany them and walk them through the testifying process.
Below you will find a status update of your priorities through week.
