WA Lege Day 23: Election changes and family leave

OLYMPIA — A busy morning in the legislative hearing rooms, with separate hearings on the Family and Medical Leave Act, major changes to the state's election laws and a plan to designate the day after Thanksgiving as a legal holiday named Native American Heritage Day.

The House Ag & Natural Resources Committee has several bills on wolves, and in the afternoon the Senate Natural Resources Committee will look at changes in the Discover Pass system. Senate Energy Committee has a bill that narrows the rules on the purchase of renewable energy by utilities.

Occupational Therapists and the State Residential Care Council are having their “lobby day” and the Governor's Office of Indian Affairs, the Commission on African American Affairs and the Commission on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs have a reception this evening.
