Although we had a great hearing on HB 2687, we have been informed that the bill will not have a hearing in the House Appropriations committee.

This means that the bill will not be moving any further through the legislative process. And, as we’ve known since the beginning of session, SB 6420 will not be given a hearing in the Senate. 

The Association of Washington Cities has asked us to join them in requesting money for a proviso to study the costs of indigent defense in Washington State. A letter making this request of both the House and the Senate will go out sometime this week.
