Interesting bills...

With bill cutoff looming, here are some of the more interesting bills floating around Olympia:

-House Bill 3269: Creating Smoking Rooms: Prime-sponsored by Rep. Bill Grant, D-Walla Walla, this would allow bars, clubs or other public places to designate – subject to ventilation laws regarding secondhand smoke – refuges for smokers. The bill is stalled in the Health Care Committee.
-House Bill 2793: From Rep. Maralyn Chase, D-Shoreline, this would require a deposit of at least a nickel on cans and bottles.
-House Bill 2990: An effort to promote the beauty of submerged Puget Sound and its wildlife to paying tourists, the bill from Rep. Sherry Appleton, D-Poulsbo, is titled “Promoting Underwater Viewing.”
-House Bill 2779: From Rep. Pat Sullivan, D-Covington, this would mandate use of car headlights whenever the windshield wipers are going.
