Capitol Classroom Bill Tracker

Congratulations we have made it HALFWAY through the 2021 Legislative Session!!

Here we have compiled the major bills that our Capitol Classrooms have been tracking that have made it out of their “Houses of Origin” and are destined to begin the process all over again in their “Opposite Chambers”.

That means students will have a second opportunity to reach out to their legislators and advocate on their bills – and possibly even provide public testimony.

We have setup a webpage for each bill with links to TVW footage of Public Testimony and Floor Debate as well as coverage done by TVW’s Angela Nolasco on Legislative Review.

These should act as quick guides to hear the concerns of Washington citizens on each bill and the positions taken by Legislators.

We encourage students to pay close attention to the many perspectives held by “stakeholders” and to take them into account when advocating on your bills in the second half of the session.

Bills Being Tracked:

  • HB 1016 – Making Juneteenth a legal holiday.
  • HB 1054 – Establishing requirements for tactics and equipment used by peace officers.
  • HB 1091 – Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the carbon intensity of transportation fuel.
  • HB 1162 – Concerning high school graduation credit and pathway options.
  • HB 1273 – Concerning menstrual products in schools.
  • HB 1356 – Prohibiting the inappropriate use of Native American names, symbols, or images as public school mascots, logos, or team names.
  • SB 5096 – Concerning an excise tax on gains from the sale or exchange of certain capital assets.
  • SB 5242 – Supporting media literacy and digital citizenship.
