2023 WFIA Week 14 Off the Shelf Legislative Recap

April 14, 2023

Only one week left of the 2023 legislative session! This week, WFIA's Governmental Affairs Director, Katie Beeson gives an update on week 14 action. We have hit a critical point in session; Wednesday, April 12th was opposite house cut-off. ​The Ergonomics bill (ESSB 5217) passed out of the house with a 51-46 vote on April 7th and is on the way to the Governor's desk. As a reminder, this bill was significantly amended in the Senate during the first half of session. The Warehouse bill (1762) did pass off of the Senate floor on April 11th. We will continue to monitor this bill as it moves to the opposite chamber for concurrence and we hope to see it killed. HB 1589 which would ban natural gas use in new residential and commercial buildings, has died.
