Senate Committee Passes Bathroom Rule Repeal, Sex-Selective Abortion Ban

 

FPIW Legislative Update | Wednesday, February 3, 2016 at 9:29pm PST

The Senate Law and Justice Committee will pass SB 6548*, a bill that clarifies the Washington Civil Rights Act, effectively repealing the Human Rights Commission’s open-bathroom rule, and SB 6612, a bill to ban sex-selective abortions.

These bills will now head to consideration by the Senate Rules Committee and must be approved for a floor vote by that committee before they are eligible to be voted on by all Senate members.

Please contact your legislators to let them know your thoughts on these two important issues.

*SB 6548 is expected to officially pass on Thursday, following receipt of a formal signature from a member who was excused from the hearing tonight. That member is expected to recommend passage.
