Take Action

You have the power—every voice matters for animals!

Humane Lobby Day 2011

Humane Lobby Day in Olympia, WA

The 2014 session of the Washington State Legislature officially kicked off on Monday January 14 and will run through April 28. Unfortunately, none of the animal welfare bills that PAWS was supporting made it past the February bill cut-off date.

Keeping track:

PAWS will continue to monitor bills that impact animals and you can also keep track of bills by visiting the legislature home page. Bills that are going through the House of Representatives start with the letters “HB” while bills going through the Senate start with the letters “SB.” When a bill has another “S” in front of it, this means it is a substitute version of the bill.

In 2015 a new biennial cycle will begin, which means bill previously introduced have to start all over again. Visit the Washington State Legislative homepage to learn more about how bills become laws.

Remember, legislators and policy makers need to hear your voice so they know that animal welfare issues are a priority, so reach out to them and share your thoughts!
