Governor signs Rep. Luanne Van Werven’s first prime-sponsored bill
A measure prime-sponsored by Rep. Luanne Van Werven that would clean up redundancies and streamline election law was signed into law on Wednesday.
Van Werven, R-Lynden, says House Bill 1806 is a good efficiency bill.
“I believe a bill cleaning up election law is a good first piece of legislation. It is progress toward my goal of reducing government, even if just a little,” said Van Werven. “My first session has been a great learning experience. I have found other than introducing and passing bills you can also be an effective legislator by being a communicator, problem solver, negotiator and diplomat for issues important to Whatcom County and the state of Washington.”
House Bill 1806 had strong, bipartisan support and passed through the Legislature unanimously.
The law takes effect 90 days after the adjournment of the regular legislative session.
