Mosbrucker bills advancing through Senate, may be heading to governor

As the 2019 regular legislative session enters its final days before scheduled adjournment April 28, hundreds of bills are dying as they fail to advance from their committees by policy cutoff, April 3, and fiscal cutoff, April 9. However, Rep. Gina Mosbrucker has several bills that have survived the deadlines and could soon be up for a vote by the full Senate.

“My exceptional staff and I have put a lot of work into moving our legislative asks forward. I'm pleased to say we've made a great deal of progress,” said Mosbrucker, R-Goldendale.

On Friday, Mosbrucker issued a status report of her prime-sponsored bills moving through the Senate, and one that has passed the House and Senate:

PASSED THE HOUSE AND SENATE:

  • House Bill 1919 – Animal abuse Would increase penalties for animal abuse – and particularly against those who use dogs for sport blood fighting. An amendment was added in the Senate, so it comes back to the House for concurrence. The House is expected to take a final vote any time now, and then it will go to the governor for his signature.

IN SENATE RULES COMMITTEE:

AWAITING A VOTE BY THE FULL SENATE:

TO BE DETERMINED (Bills under negotiation):

“I'm excited that we've gotten this far with these very important bills. However, nothing is concrete until the final gavel falls, so I remain cautiously optimistic about getting these bills passed by the Senate and sent to the governor,” said Mosbrucker.
