Protecting the initiative process

Shortly after I sent my previous update, we got word that the state Supreme Court had issued a favorable ruling in our case against the Legislature over its unconstitutional response to I-940. The ruling sends the police-deadly-force initiative to the November ballot, protects the initiative process, and establishes the supremacy of the state constitution over the whims of some legislators who find it inconvenient.

We also recently received a report from the Senate on remote testimony. As you know, this issue directly affects us in eastern Washington. We must keep pushing to make this important tool available across our state.

You can read more about these, and other important topics, in this Report from Olympia.
