UPDATE: HB 2576 Is Officially Dead – For Now

UPDATE: In typical political dishonesty Speaker Frank Chopp has snuck 2576 back in via a back door method by attaching it to the state budget, claiming the bill “necessary to implement the budget”. This is the way these folks operate, in the best interests of their friends, not for the citizens. Time to investigate Chopp


Well I finally got some good news this week, actually this morning. A bill which would’ve allowed the govt to further withhold public records from us is officially dead. Good riddens to bad rubbish.



Representative Vick’s aide is the only one who got back to me, to give me the good news…

They’ll all be back trying to get the same bill, probably worse in there next year but I have it on good word that we will need it less next year anyway.

There are a lot of folks up for reelection and we are investigating most of those folks so that they won’t be able to violate our rights for too much longer.

We received a very interesting “notebook” which we will copy and give to anyone running against a good deal of these people.

In the meantime I would suggest that every voter in the state of Washington take a good long hard look at the bill sponsors. We most certainly are.

These are people who fought hard to keep public records from you, the voters.
