2020 Discover Pass Bills
« on: January 22, 2020, 09:35:57 AM »
Another legislative session, another chance to change (or chuck?) the Discover Pass.

SB 6093 and SB 6174 both propose to get rid of the DP.
HB 2445 proposes to raise price of DP to $35.

None of these bills have hearings yet.
Want more info.  Search the bill numbers on the Washington state legislature website:

Wow, i clicked on that article, and saw this.

"Now that the recession is over, Schoesler says, it’s time to give back to taxpayers. Other lawmakers have the same idea — but for different projects — and are pushing for free feminine hygiene products or the elimination of sales tax on diapers. These are “nice ideas,” says Schoesler, but they all only impact a segment of the population."

Tax payer funded tampons?  Really?  Really???

Just think of the resale/black market on those things.🤔
