Today I am asking for you to take Action!
CAPR ACTION ALERT!
Call your Senator and Representatives and tell them to pass these bills! 800 562 6000
CAPR has been working the legislature to pass our Liberty Based Bills!
These two bills are the reason we, as CAPR, work to get legislation in play at the legislature! If we all act together as CAPR members we can get these bills passed!
Please call and ask for these bills to move through the legislature and become law!
Bill # 1
Thanks to Senator Jeff Holy SB 6315, Concerning enforcement of the policies of the department of ecology, is scheduled for public hearing in the Senate Committee on Environment, Energy & Technology at 10:00 AM on Tuesday January 28.
Bill text: Beginning July 1, 2020, the department of ecology may not apply or enforce any interpretive statement, policy statement, or rule unless the interpretive statement, policy statement, or rule has been adopted as a rule in accordance with the rule-making process provided in this chapter, codified in the Washington Administrative Code, and expressly ratified by the legislature in a bill enacted pursuant to the State Constitution.
Please come and testify if it is important to you to provide better legislative oversight and accountability to the Department of Ecology! If you can’t come and testify, please be sure to call 800 562 6000.
This is one of CAPR’s original Administrative Law Reform bills, CAPR members, it is time for you to help get this reform passed!
Bill # 2
Thanks to Senator Phil Fortunato SB 6572, Concerning uniform due process of land use code violations, is Scheduled for public hearing in the Senate Committee on Local Government at 8:00 AM on Thursday, January 30.
Bill text of note: Before any violation of an ordinance is issued under this chapter, the name of any complainant must be available to the person receiving a notice of violation. A notice of violation may be based on information provided by a complainant if a determination to investigate is made after receiving a phone call, email, letter, report, complaint, or other information from a party who claims that a violation is or may be occurring or will soon occur. Activities may not be investigated based on information provided by an anonymous complainant. This subsection does not create any civil liability on the part of the state or any state agency, officer, employee, or agent.
This bill is a CAPR bill sponsored by Senator Fortunato in response to CAPR members and others in his constituency who have suffered the results of anonymous land use code violations.
This bill prohibit anonymous code use violations and prohibits agency action based on anonymous complaints.
Please come and testify if you have been the recipient of an anonymous violation and have faced hardship over such code enforcement activities.
If you cannot come and testify, be sure to back up the hard work done to get this bill to a hearing and call your Senator and Representatives and ask for this bill to move through the legislature and become law! Please also call the legislative hotline at 800 562 6000!
Please call 800 562 6000 and let the legislature know what you think of these bills!
