Thumb SB5097 - Allow spouses to share hours to earn free D-Pass

Senate Bill SB5097 would allow spouses to pool their volunteer hours for the purpose of earning a free Discover Pass.

http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summ...5097&year=2013

It has been passed by the Senate and has now been scheduled for a hearing before the House Environment Committee on Wednesday 19-Feb-2014 at 1:30pm.

If you like the idea, let the committee members know how you feel.

Shelly Short is my Rep, and I wrote to her, but I suggested a better bill would be to eliminate the Discover Pass altogether.

SB5097 is stuck in committee.

It was scheduled to be voted out yesterday but the committee chairman Joe Fitzgibbon did not bring it up for a vote.

The Senate passed this bill unanimously, so I am not sure why he is sitting on it.


Please ask him to pass SB5097 out of the House Environment Committee.


His email addy:

The House Environment Committee has scheduled a vote on this Wednesday afternoon.

Still time to contact the members of that committee.

Good news - SB5097 was passed out of the House Environment Committee yesterday.

Bad news - It was amended to be limited to a two year trial period and requires the agencies to report back to the Legislature data on lost revenue, free passes issued, etc.

It will now move to the House Rules Committee.

While 2014 Senate Bill SB5097 died when the 2014 legislative session came to an end, 2015 Senate Bill SB5205 will be introduced tomorrow by Senator Randi Becker to do the same thing.

More details and action items when it gets officially introduced and assigned to a Senate committee.

SB5205 has now been assigned to the House Environment Committee.

Last year they passed a nearly identical bill.

If you support SB5205, ask them to support it too.
