Legislative Update from Olympia 8 April 2011
HB 1016 DELIVERED TO GOVERNOR; MONDAY ACTION
STILL AWAITING VOTES ON TWO BILLS IN SENATE
SECOND CHAMBER CUT-OFF TUESDAY, 12 APRIL
SESSION SCHEDULED TO END ON EASTER SUNDAY
HB 1016, by Rep. Brian Blake (D-19), was officially delivered to Governor Gregoire on Wednesday, 6 April. She has five days to act on the bill. HB 1016 is currently on her schedule for executive action at 2 p.m. on Monday, 11 April. Gubernatorial action on bills and scheduled bill signing information can be found at http://www.governor.wa.gov/billaction/2011/default.asp
Two bills are still hanging in Senate Rules awaiting a pull to the floor for a vote of the full Senate. HB 1455, by Rep. Jim McCune (R-2) (restoration of rights) and SHB 1923, by Rep. Roger Goodman (D-45) (CPL qualification) must pass out of the Senate by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, 12 April or die for this session. Both the House and Senate are working this weekend to overcome the backlog of bills,
As noted above, Tuesday, 12 April is the cut-off for bills to pass their second chamber (House bills in the Senate and Senate bills in the House). Bills that fail to make it over this hurdle will be considered dead for the 2011 regular session.
As required by the state constitution, the 2011 regular session of the legislature must end by midnight on Sunday, 24 April, the 105th legislative day. 24 April is Easter Sunday. I suspect the session will end a day or two earlier, given the religious and family-related significance of Easter Sunday.
The following bills are still under consideration for the 2011-12 biennium:
Bill # Subject Sponsor Status
HB 1016 Suppressor use Blake (D-19) To Gov.
HB 1455 Restoration of rights McCune (R-2) S. Rules
SHB 1923 CPL qualification Goodman (D-45) S. Rules
Key to abbreviations: HB = House Bill, SHB = Substitute House Bill
GOAL POSITION ON BILLS
HB 1016 SUPPORT
HB 1455 SUPPORT
SHB 1923 SUPPORT
No public hearings remain for gun-related bills.
