FCWPP Alert: Three criminal justice bills require action in the Senate Ways & Means Committee 

If you live in a legislative district whose state Senator is on the Ways & Means Committee, your senator’s action is crucial to advancing the following bills.  Please call or email them today (see list of Committee members below).  Action in the Committee must be completed by this Tuesday, April 9. It is particularly important to reach Committee Chair Sen. Andy Hill (district 45; email Andy.Hill@leg.wa.gov and Majority Leader Sen. Rodney Tom (district 48; email Rodney.Tom@leg.wa.gov).

1. HB 1341:  Compensation for persons wrongfully convicted (prime sponsor: Orwall; more info: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=1341&year=2013) 

2. HB 1284:  Rights for parents who are incarcerated (prime sponsor: Roberts; more info: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=1284&year=2013)

3. HB 1777:  Acceleration of date for expanding mental health grounds for involuntary commitment (prime sponsor: Green; more info: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=1777&year=2013)
We need to let Committee members know that we care about these bills.  Thanks for all you do!
