I just received an email from Joe Schmick:
For your information, HB 1016 just passed the House with a vote of 88-4. I voted in support of the bill. It will now go to the Senate for their consideration.
Unsurprisingly the 4 nay votes were from the Peoples Republic of Puget Sound.
If you live in their districts, remember what they think of you come next election.
Senate Judiciary passed it this morning. There was no debate. The decision was a unanimous “do pass”. It is now on the way to the Senate Rules Committee.
