Monday, February 15, marks the policy committee cutoff for the 2021 legislative session.
This means that any bill that has not been passed through an executive session (a.k.a. “exec’d”) out of its policy committee (e.g., House Education, Senate Early Learning & K-12 Education) by the end of the day is considered “dead”.
For more important dates, see the 2021 Session Cutoff Calendar.
As we approach the policy cutoff, there are fewer opportunities to weigh in on bills. As such, WSSDA provided testimony or signed-in on the following five bills this week:
The at-a-glance document shows the status of bills relevant to WSSDA’s adopted positions. Some of the bills listed reflect WSSDA’s priorities, while others may conflict.
We hope this new presentation of bills will be of use to those following WSSDA’s advocacy.
If you want to provide testimony as an individual, school board member, or on behalf of WSSDA, email WSSDA Strategic Advocacy Director Marissa Rathbone for more information.
If you have a student leader who would like to provide testimony, email WSSDA Strategic Advocacy Coordinator Logan Endres for more information.
