Rep. Gina Mosbrucker – Special session floor speech supporting a stronger ‘Blake’ drug possession law

Rep. Gina Mosbrucker, R-Goldendale, urged the House to support the bipartisan agreement on Senate Bill 5536, which increases penalties for drug possession and use to a gross misdemeanor, among other provisions. Mosbrucker, ranking Republican on the House Community Safety, Justice and Reentry Committee, was a key negotiator of the measure. The bill passed 83-13 during the one-day special session, which was called to address this issue before a temporary law expired on July 1.
