2012 Regular Legislative Session Day 19

It’s Friday baby! I’m in the Labor and Workforce Development Committee this morning listening to testimony on HB 2348 related to the Workforce Investment Act and HB 2265 establishing Washington Works payments to increase graduation rates. HB 2265 will only cost the taxpayers $140 million per biennium.

Last night the State Government and Tribal Affairs Committee met at 6:30 PM to take Executive Action on 10 bills. We made a procedural motion to put the Regulatory Freedom and Accountability Act on the Executive Session calendar, but the motion failed. So much for the Denorcrat Majority wanting to deal with systemic problems with over regulation. We’ll keep working on it for the next few days.

Last night the House Republican Organizational Committee met at AWB to elect 3 members to the Board of Directors. I was officially elected as the Eastern Washington representative to the HROC Board of Directors. With 8 seats, we take the majority … Time to get to work, as soon as session ends.
