Bill alllowing legislators to meet with state employees gets good Senate hearing

Rep. Sam Hunt’s bill to clarify it’s OK for legislators to meet with state employees for informational meetings at worksite lunchtime meetings and the like had no opposition in its first Senate Hearing Tuesday (March 15). SHB 1179 came before the Senate Government Operations Committee.

“It would allow you as legislators to come and give information to our members or any other state employee for that matter and not have it be a conflict of interest,” Federation Lobbyist Matt Zuvich told the committee.
