The State House passed the Reproductive Parity Act. So now it looks like it will probably go on to not get a vote in the State Senate.
I am honestly trying to not be cynical about the law’s chances in the state Senate. I was just in Olympia lobbying for it on Monday. I believe in the power of people to push the Senate to act. So, please call or write your Senator. If you live in East King County, or somewhere else where there are Republicans in swing districts, that can be important. But even if you’re represented by a Democrat in Seattle, Tacoma, or somewhere else safe, it’s important to let them know you’ve got their back on this one. Or if you live in a red district, your Senator might see what pressure the other members are getting and at least allow a vote.
I don’t think it’ll pass, but it’s possible. In any event, it’s worth trying.
