Inslee signing boatload of bills

OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee is scheduled to sign more than four dozens of bills this morning, including:

— a bill to raise fees on vehicle tab replacements and transfers for people who do that online or at county auditors' offices to help pay for the state's next 144-ca.

— a bill to outlaw tanning for minors without a doctor's prescription 

— a bill to require suicide prevention training

— a bill to establish a license plate for breast cancer awareness

— a bill requiring training in the open meetings and records act for public officials.

In signing that last one, he took a swipe at legislators, whom he said were “disingenuous” by exempting themselves from that training while requiring it for other elected officials. The original bill, requested by Attorney General Bob Ferguson, included legislators and Inslee said the amendment that took them out was a “serious error.”
