January 30th – 2013 Regular Legislative Session Day 17

Today in the Government Operations and Elections Committee we’re hearing three bills. House Bill 1078 removes special elections as an option for submission of a ballot proposition to reduce the terms of office of port commissioners. House Bill 1121 creates two house districts within each legislative district and provides for the election of members of the House of Representatives from those districts. Lastly, House Bill 1413 establishes the Washington voting rights act of 2013 to promote equal voting opportunities in certain political subdivisions.

I, along with Rep. Jason Overstreet, have been asked to attend a joint press conference with the Washington Policy Center and National Federation of Independent Businesses today at 3:30. The WPC and NFIB will be discussing the need for regulatory reform in Washington State and highlighting bills Rep. Overstreet and I have introduced.

At 4:00 PM today I will be on KIT to discuss House Bill 1371, the Washington Firearms Freedom Act.
