2015 Legislative Session Wrap-Up

Budget negotiations went to wire again this session and many thanks are owed to everyone who assisted WDA in securing our maintenance funding in the 2015-17 state budget. The legislature passed the budget in time to meet its June 30 deadline; however, it stayed in session to complete passage of other legislation until July 10, 2015 making it the longest single session in state history. Our appreciation goes out to WDA/WACDL lobbyist Bob Cooper and everyone involved in our legislative advocacy for their hard work and stamina during this grueling session. A full recap of the session and bills passed will be in the August issue of Washington Criminal Defense magazine.

An overview of bills that passed can be found here.
