This week promises to move quickly as Friday is the last day for policy committees to act on bills. Sponsors and advocates alike will be anxious to see their bills move forward and increasingly concerned as Friday approaches.
Many of the measures we are working on have already moved from their policy committees. Our main concern this week is whether legislation increase funding for indigent defense services (HB 2687) will move out of the House Judiciary Committee.
This is a big week for WSAC as the Legislative Steering Committee, Board of Directors, and Strategic Litigation and Communications Workgroup will all be meeting. WSAC members will be in town for at least two days on Wednesday and Thursday, and we’re looking forward to working with them!
