Washington Legislature 2024

Bill Tracker


Welcome to the 2024 Legislative Tracker for Washington State.

We want to help you follow important — and just interesting — proposals in Olympia this session.

We’ll continue updating this bill tracker throughout the session, which is scheduled to end on March 7. Feb. 13 is the deadline for this legislative session’s policy bills to pass out of their house of origin. Feb. 26 is the deadline for bills to pass out of the opposite house committee. March 1 is the deadline for bills not related to the budget to pass out of both houses.

We’ve color-coded each bill status to help you keep track of where measures stand: Green means the bill appears to be still alive. Yellow means its future is in question. Red means we believe the measure is dead for this year.

But beware of zombie bills 🧟 — legislation related to the budget does not have a deadline. That means that even if a bill appears dead, it could come back to life if lawmakers decide that it’s tied to the budget. Here’s the complete legislative deadline calendar.

If you notice we’re not tracking a bill that you think should be included, we want to hear from you! Send us the bill number and why you think it’s important in the form below. ⬇️
