February 12th – 2013 Regular Legislative Session Day 30

It’s going to be a busy day here in Olympia. My day started with public hearing in the Government Operations and Elections committee. The Regulatory Freedom and Accountability Act from the Freedom Agenda, House Bill 1163, was heard this morning. We received great testimony in support of the bill, so let’s see if the bill moves out of committee. Call the Chairman of the Government Operation and Elections Committee, Rep Hunt, and ask him to move the bill out of committee.

The Government Operations and Elections Committee is hearing four other bills this morning as well. House Bill 1400 amends the Washington Administrative Procedure Act to provide that administrative hearing notices and orders may be served electronically upon the parties to administrative hearings.

House Bill 1418 requires cities, towns, and special purpose districts that do not maintain office hours for a minimum of thirty hours per week to post directions on how to contact the agency personnel and to respond to requests to inspect or copy records at the next regularly scheduled agency meeting.

House Bill 1449 exempts victim impact statements from disclosure under the Public Records Act and exempts documents and other materials provided by the defense to the prosecution.

House Bill 1456 authorizes pretax payroll deductions for qualified transit and parking benefits.

There are also eight bills scheduled for possible Executive Action.
