Yet more interesting bills…

-SB 6876: (Sponsored by 18 lawmakers): “Prohibiting the Superintendent of Public Instruction from encouraging or promoting the teaching of sexual orientation.”
From the text of the bill: “The legislature further finds that the office of superintendent of public instruction has published materials that encourage the presentation of sexual orientation to the early grades and that this teaching is inappropriate and unacceptable.”
-SJM 8040: From Sen. Pat Thibadeau, D-Seattle: “Requesting the creation of a Department of Peace and Nonviolence.”
-SB 6499: (Sen. Pam Roach, R-Auburn): “Putting all voters on inactive status until proof of citizenship and photo identification are provided.”
-SB 6528: (Sen. Joyce Mulliken, R-Ephrata): “Permitting roadside tire-chain businesses.” Requested by the state Department of Transportation and backed by the State Patrol, this would allow people to – for a fee – connect and disconnect people’s tire chains on the roadside. California allows this now.
-SCR 8415: (Sen. Craig Pridemore, D-Vancouver): Establishing a “Select Committee on Securing a Second Major League Baseball Team for the Pacific Northwest.” Meaning, if you actually read the bill, in Portland.
