To ABATE members and fellow Freedom Fighters,
Today, 3-12-14, the President of the Senate (Lt. Gov. Brad Owens) and the Speaker of the House (Rep. Frank Chopp) have signed SB5141 which signifies that legislature is ready to send the Red Light Bill to Governor Inslee for signature.
The next step is that the bill gets 'transmitted' (delivered) to the Governor. 'Any bill that is transmitted in the final 5 days of session as to be signed or vetoed by the governor with 20 days (excluding Sunday). If the Governor does not take action, the Bill becomes law without the Governors signature.' The transmittal should be by the end of the day tomorrow.
The Governors office is supposed to announce (post) the date with as a 5 day notice. We expect the signing to be sometime before the end of the day April 5th, but should be sooner.
As soon as ABATE is notified of the signing date, word will be passed around through the ABATE communication officer, the USDefenders network, and of course social networks.
