Washington State Action Steps

On January 15, the 4th Amendment Protection Act was introduced, HB2272. (learn about it here) It was referred to the House Judiciary committee where it needed to pass by majority vote by 02-07-14. The Judiciary chair did not bring the bill forward for even a hearing, unfortunately.

Talks between bill sponsors and the speaker of the house have indicated that an amendment with some of the language of 2272 will be offered to another privacy bill that did pass out of committee in time, HB2179.  The language is being finalized – and should be under consideration the week of 02-10-14.

YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED NOW.  It doesn’t matter where in WA State you live, take these actions today.

1. Call your state rep.  Strongly, but respectfully urge them to support the additional protections actions warrantless data that will be introduced as an amendment to HB2179.  A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.

2.  on Twitter?  Retweet!

3.  Write a letter to the editor Look up your local newspaper and submit a letter to the editor voicing your support for HB2179. Following strong legal principles, it’s essential that Washington State no longer help the federal government spy on all of us. Passing HB2179 will be a big step towards making that happen.

  20. Continue to reduce military jobs, benefits and overseas “vacationing” troops who have no business in other countries .Work here in our OWN country , stopping illegal border crossing and deporting every single person here who gained entry illegally.

    Want some respect? Then do the RIGHT thing and stop acting weak and carry out the U.S. laws we have already. We need 50% reduction in military spending, so we can keep our citizens employed, not a military person who has no respect from the majority of residents here…… it’s a shame.
