It’s week 5 of the legislative session and we’re mixing it up a bit this week.
Instead of our weekly “Top 5” bills, we’ve got 3 bills that have hearings TODAY which means you need to take action right NOW! The good news: we support 2 of the 3 bills – great way to start the week!
SB 5599 – we’ve been posting a lot about this bill. SB 5599 would make it possible for minor children (no minimum age) to get gender transition surgeries or drugs and abortions without parental consent. If a youth is seeking “protected health care services” (gender transition surgeries or abortions) this is considered a “compelling reason” that parental consent would not be necessary. This is the worst bill of the session, by far! Please sign in CON by 9:30AM 2/6/23, if you have not done so already. This bill has a public hearing on 2/6 at 10:30AM
SB 5035 is sponsored by Senator Mike Padden and would make possession of hard drugs a felony…again. This bill repeals one of the bills passed in 2021. We SUPPORT this bill. Please sign in PRO by 9:30AM 2/6/23. This bill has a public hearing on 2/6 at 10:30AM
HB 1308 would create additional pathways to graduation, allowing students to use performance-based pathway to the options that school districts may offer. This new option would allow students to show what they know and can do in real-world, hands-on ways that align with their individual goals for after high school. We SUPPORT this bill. Please sign in PRO by 12:30PM 2/6/23. This bill has a public hearing in the House Education Committee on 2/6 at 1:30PM.
We are working hard to fight for Washington
and conservative values.
