WA Bill Tracker

We want to help you follow important proposals this session in the Washington Legislature.

We’ll continue updating this bill tracker throughout the rest of the session, which is scheduled to end on April 23. March 8 was the deadline for this legislative session’s policy bills to pass out of their house of origin. April 4 was the deadline for bills to pass out of the opposite house committee. April 12 is the deadline for bills not related to the budget to pass out of both houses. We’ve given each bill a stoplight code: 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. ⬇️
