    That was the first reading of the bill – which passed.
    To become a law the bill has to pass two more readings.
    Then it needs to be signed by the chair of each chamber (Senate, House).
    Then it gets signed by the Governor.

    If all this happens successfully the bill becomes a law right away, because of the emergency clause in the bill.

    So what are the chances this will pass this year? It sure looks good. We will know soon enough. How can I help? Who do I call/write?

    Batman,
    Chances for passing 3148 are pretty good. The bill is in the Senate Rules Committee right now. Contact any member of the committee and urge their support. Here's a link to the list of members:

    http://www.leg.wa.gov/Senate/Committees/RULE/members.htm

    Our best bet though is to contact Senator Adam Kline. He stood and spoke in support of Senator Morton's bill SB-5456 when it was on the senate floor. 5456 was the other bill that we were supporting. Kline is the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman and during the hearing and executive session for 3148, he sounded very supportive.

    BEWARE. Kline's usually a Grabber, if he wants to pass this thing there's a good chance he has a "gut-'n'-stuff" in mind...

    Not sure how fast the update the bill information online, but there is no word on it yet. My understanding per another poster here is that today was the last day for the bill to make it out of the senate. Doesn't look like anything happened, but then again, it could just be they are slow at updating the site.

    Again the bill isn't getting attention.
    Previously the bill was heard with the following bills. (below)
    Some of the bills below already are up for a second reading (updated today the 3rd)
    such as http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=1143&year=2008

    The best thing to do is contact your senator.


    Excutive: To be announced., HB 1142, HB 1143, 2SHB 2557, E2SHB 2712, SHB 2727, HB 2762, HB 2774, HB 2999, SHB 2858, EHB 2476, ESHB 3148, HJM 4031

    Yes 5456 is dead.
    The only hope is 3148 and we need to work on getting it out of the Rules Committee.

    There was a rules meeting today at 1:15 and it looks like the bill wasn't addressed.

    The due date for the bill to pass is this Friday otherwise it's dead

    Rules also reads like a Who's Who of WA Grabbers, IIRC.

    That's probably for 5456.

    3148 is in Rules, and could still get passed. I just got a letter from Rep. Moeller. He said to contact your representative and ask him/her to speak with Senate Rules members in favour of the bill.

    It looks like 3148 will be heard in Senate Rules today, there still is a tiny hope.
