! Taping Bill Lives !

Good news. The taping bill made it out of committee Thursday night during the special reconsideration hearing. Here is the story from The Olympian and the (Vancouver) Columbian.

The bill has a few more manageable hurdles in the House but then it would go to the Senate. The Senate Majority Leader, Lisa Brown, is signaling that she is not inclined to give it a vote in the Senate.

Now is the time to start preparing your Senators to vote for the taping bill. You can contact them by clicking here and then send them an email urging them to support HB 3292 when it comes over to the Senate.
