Here in the day-in-the-life for a bill signing day. On days like today, citizens who were engaged in bill ideas and drafting, advocates, lobbyists, legislators, their hard working staff, and other interested folks come to Olympia to participate in bill signings with the Governor. Last stop 🛑 for a bill to become law. Up today bills from significant hate crime legislation, to snow bikes, to streamlining child protection services, to ensuring access to substance abuse services, many bills related to education, expanding commercial lease space to increase economic vitality, enhancing career and technical offerings, significant environmental impact legislation, health for American Indians to many things in between. Your work and voice matters. Get involved, send us bill ideas, and engage with the process. It’s a great day to celebrate much hard work. Honored to serve the terrific 28th! #waleg
