Legislative Review — March 2

Legislative Review features highlights from Thursday’s legislative activity (3/2/23).


The Senate holds a contentious debate on proposed state ergonomics rules administered by the Washington Department of Labor and Industries — proponents say they’re needed to protect workers, opponents say they’re an unnecessary and costly burden on businesses. 


Also in the Senate, debate over a bill that would remove parental notice requirements for minors seeking abortion or gender-affirming care. 


In the House, equally contentious debate over a bill governing damage deposits required by residential landlords. And, bipartisan support for a bill to encourage apprenticeships that connect high-schoolers to vocational careers.
