Eye On Olympia

What was left on the cutting-room floor...

As legislative deadlines hit, more and more bills are getting killed. Here, for example, is a sampler of (largely-Republican) bills that have died in the Senate:

-SB 5905: To allow immediate eviction of tenants committing crimes or "unlawful civil disruptions."
-SB 5078: Canceling all voter registrations and requiring re-registration by 2007.
-SB 5079: Holding a special election for governor this year.
-SB 5821: Requiring that girls under 18 notify a parent before getting an abortion, except in a medical emergency.
-SB 5747: Freezing the minimum wage during bad economic times.
-SB 5677: Permanently revoking teaching certificates for teachers guilty of viewing sexually explicit materials on school grounds.
