Why reading the bill title isn’t enough…

The bill: SB 5130, sponsored by Sen. Ken Jacobsen, D-Seattle.

How the short title printout and website describe it: "Expanding hunter access to certain private lands."

What you discover, though, if you actually read the bill: That the bill would expand access and preserve habitat -- by tacking a $5 to $25 surcharge onto both small game and big game hunting licenses.
