Flurries of filings and hearings

January 17, 2018

Bills continue to be written, introduced, revised and scheduled at a rapid pace in Olympia. Among the issues we testified on this week was SB 6146, which concerns appropriate weapons policy. This year, the WSHA board made clear that we should support appropriate weapons policies for patients and visitors. Many people don’t realize that the right to carry a gun in public areas extends to hospitals that are part of public hospital districts. We are working with lawmakers to allow hospitals to have a no-weapons policy. Read more in this week’s Inside Olympia. (Chris Bandoli)
