LFO Bill Advances – Action Needed

LFO: Legal Financial Obligations
After a day of hearing testimony from grieving moms, learned judges, and faith groups (including a Catholic Bishop and UU Voices and Justice not Jails) – the Senate Law and Justice Committee decided to schedule a vote on Bill 1783 for 15Feb.  This is hopeful, since the bill has already passed through the House this session.
Now is the time to contact your Senator.  Every call and eMail counts – especially if one of the Senators is from your district, to encourage this committee to pass this bill.

Questions welcome.

See link to article on LFOs below.
Now is our chance to move this reform bill forward.  It almost succeeded last year.  
Visit leg.wa.gov for more informatrion.  It is the operatror’s manual for Washington State government. 
It feels like the tide has changed in the legislature this year, and that Justice work may really show results.
