GOAL Post 2019-6
Legislative Update from Olympia 15 February 2019

GOVERNOR AND AG SAY I-639 WILL BE ENFORCED
NEW BILLS FILED
BILLS PASS OUT OF COMMITTEE
POLICY COMMITTEE CUT-OFF NEXT FRIDAY
PUBLIC HEARINGS SCHEDULED

In a press conference Thursday, both Governor Inslee and Attorney General Bob Ferguson said I-1639 WILL be enforced by Washington law enforcement officials. I wonder if they’ve ever heard of civil disobedience?

There were no new gun bills filed this week.

A few bills passed out of committee this week. HB 1381 (UAVs/contraband) and SB 5150 (college safety officers) apparently were amended and passed out of committee (final results not posted at this time). Presumably both are in their respective Rules Committees.

As a general (procedural) rule, bills must pass out of their first policy committee by next Friday (22 Feb) or be considered dead for the session. Because bills with major fiscal impact usually go to a fiscal committee, that cut-off date is a week later. In most cases, the cut-off rule holds, but exceptions can be made, and bills revived. No bill is truly dead until the end of the session.

Executive session (committee votes) will be held on several bills next week, given the Friday committee cut-off.

Public hearings are scheduled next week for several bills. HBs 1934 (military CPL renewal) and 1949 (firearm background checks) will be heard in House Civil Rights and Judiciary on February 19th. SB 5782 (knives) will be heard in Senate Law & Justice on February 18th. SB 5016 (arming animal control officers) will be heard in Senate Law & Justice on February 19th. SB 5181 (firearms/mental health) will be heard in Senate Ways & Means on February 19th as well.
