Legislative Committee Report to WAMA Members

May 06, 2019 5:57 PM | admin (Administrator)

As Chairman of the WAMA Legislative Committee, I want to take a moment and thank everyone for their hard work during the 2019 legislative session.  Although many of our priority bills did not make it out of their respective committees, it’s important to note a few were listed as “Necessary To Implement the Budget (NTIB)”.  On April 28, 2019, the legislature adopted the 2019-20 budget, forwarded to the Governor for signature, that included the proviso language with relation to our bills.  

Below, please find a memorandum (PDF) as well as the list of bills (immediately below) that were successful and are on Governor Inslee’s desk for signature.
