The Current 2019 Legislative Agenda

As of 2:00 PM, February 18, 2019

Bill lists are below the action items.  All bill numbers are linked to their page on the Legislative Website.

Oppose SB 5395

Please call and email the Senate Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee in opposition to SB 5395.  Here are talking points and contact information.

Oppose SB 5395 that would require every school district to implement Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE).

  1. SB5395 violates the local control of parents and the elected school boards.   People in many areas of Washington do not want Comprehensive Sexual Education as defined by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).  This opposition and the successful rejection of the OSPI-approved FLASH curriculum by parents and faith-leaders in Battle Ground and Sequim would be impossible if SB 5395 passed.
  2. School Districts should have the flexibility to work with parents to find age- and culturally-appropriate education materials for their students.
  3. SB 5395 seeks to make CSE ‘integral’ to the district’s curriculum.  Usually, integration means cross-teaching, or integrating, curricula into one another – Math into English, Science into History, etc.  Doing so with CSE would make it impossible for parents to ‘Opt-Out’ their children from CSE.
  4. SB 5395 requires the CSE curriculum to be ‘skills-based.’  ‘Skill-based’ means teaching the skill, allowing the students time to practice the skill, and assessing the student’s proficiency in the ‘skill.’  The most obvious, but certainly not the only, ‘skill’ would be condom usage.  One must ask, what other ‘skills’ will teachers of CSE be teaching and assessing in these required classes?

Oppose HB1775 and SB5744

Oppose these companion bills.

While we support efforts to protect and free children caught in sex trafficking and exploitation, these bills have at least three major flaws.

  1. They make underage prostitution legal.  In the legislature’s effort to protect trafficked and exploited children, they should not decriminalize underage prostitution.  We do not want victims to carry the stigma of a criminal history, but a blanket legalizing of underage prostitution is not the way to do it.
  2. Under this bill, minors involved in prostitution that are picked up by the police are to be brought to one of two, yet to be built, facilities run by the Office of Youth Homelessness.  In this scenario, no identifying information is to be collected and thus there is no way to reconnect the children with their families.
  3. Rather, children picked up in these scenarios should be put in the care of the Department of Children, Youth, and Families, the agency specifically designed to deal with abused and exploited children.  DCYF is also set up to work towards family reunification which should be the ultimate goal when possible.

Call and email these committees, as well as your Representatives.

Action Items January 30

In the Senate, Senator Padden has reintroduced a bill that would require parental notification in cases of a minor seeking an abortion. (SB 5185)  We suggest you email and call the entire Senate Law & Justice Committee, urging the committee to hold a hearing on this important bill.  Similarly, Senator Fortunato introduced a bill to Regulate Abortion Facilities (SB5721).  Please call and email the entire Senate Health and Long-Term Committee urging a hearing on this bill as well.

In the House, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (HB1526) and a bill to Prohibit Certain Types of Abortions (HB1560), have been introduced to the House Health Care and Wellness committee.  Here too, we ask you email and call the entire committee asking that these two bills receive a public hearing.

Remember, we encourage you to call and email the entire committee, even if your Representative or Senator is not a member of the committee.  These committees, and particularly the Chairperson, hold the key to what legislation is heard and not heard.

Pro-life champions like you should not be shy about demanding these good bills get a public hearing.  So, even if you don’t have time to make a couple dozen phone calls, please call the Chairperson and Ranking Minority member as listed.  Be active and let your voice and concern for the unborn be heard in Olympia today.
