Bill would allow legislators to meet with state employees at worksites

Remember a few years back when the Department of Ecology told legislators it was illegal for them to hold an informational meeting with employees in an agency meeting room?

Well another bill to clarify it’s ok for legislators to meet with state employees has been introduced by Rep. Sam Hunt of the 22nd District. It makes it clear what apparently management common sense fails to do. Meetings at state worksites between employees and their legislators are OK as long as they are not political.

The bill, HB 1179, has been referred to the House State Government and Tribal Affairs Committee.
