There was a post on Dawgman wanting to know the timeline for SB 6116.
This was my response:
"The Senate Ways and Means committee took testimony and have made no recommendations thus far so it's "still in committee" until either they send it to the full Senate with approval recommended or it dies in committee for lack of support. Only they know how long that will be but there are other more pressing matters facing them right now. If it comes out it will probably happen toward the end of this session, there is usually a flurry of bills passed in the last couple of weeks. THe governess still has to sign it if it passes.
Cougs excluded, the testimony was favorable, the bill's two main sponsors are on the committee and the committee chair is from King County as well. The feeling I got from attending the hearing was the committee is in favor." I worked for State Printing dep't for 14 years and we printed all the bills, hearing minutes, etc. during the legislative sessions. That is the history behind my response. I watched them work, up close and personal for 14 years
