Legislative Watch

The 2015-2016 biennial session ended. The new session begins on January 9, 2017 and is scheduled to end on April 21, 2017.

PAWS will continue to work with our colleagues and legislators to improve the laws that protect animals and create more humane communities.

We thank you for being a part of this process, and we encourage you to revisit this page prior to the start of the 2017 session for news and information on how you can be a part of this important solution to making Washington a better place for animals and the people who love them!
