Washington State Legislature

Rebecca Hendricks of South Sound 911 is our legislative chair and was appointed in 2023.  Please contact Rebecca if you have any questions, would like to join the committee, or have any suggestions for legislative changes LEIRA should champion.

In 2018 the LEIRA Executive Board voted to attempt to influence a change in the law to help protect the privacy of child victims of sexual assault.  We are happy to report that HB 1505 has passed the Legislature with language very similar to what LEIRA proposed.  Thank you to all of the people that helped get this change pushed through.
