The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Vote on Murray bill on the horizon

According to the News Tribune, a vote on Senator Ed Murray's domestic partnership bill will be coming in the near future. The bill stands a strong chance of passage given that the House bill, HB1351, has a majority of representatives signed on as co-sponsors and its Senate counterpart, SB5336, needs only four affirmative votes to pass on top of its 21 co-sponsors. For the record, three of HB1351's sponsors are Republicans: Reps. Shirley Hankins, Fred Jarrett, and Maureen Walsh.
