#TakeAction – March 31, 2020
Let’s #TakeAction to ask Governor Inslee to sign two health care bills awaiting his signature.
🔶 Urge Governor Inslee to sign important public health legislation
Call Governor Inslee’s office, and let the Governor know that you want him to sign two public health bills he hasn’t signed yet:
• SB5601 unanimously passed both houses. It provides for the licensing and regulation of health care benefit managers; and
• SB5720, which passed each house with only one nay vote, would modernize our state involuntary commitment laws.
If Governor Inslee has already signed either of those bills, then I thank him for doing so. If any are not yet signed, urge him to do so in the interests of public health.
Background: Thanks to so many of your calls to our state legislators during the recent session, a number of important pieces of public health legislation supported by Indivisible groups in our state were passed and sent to the Governor for signature. Some of those already have been signed by him, but a few haven’t yet been signed. Let’s push these two bills over the finish line!
