Lack of Transparency In State Legislature

Jan 3, 2013

Last session, Washington state legislators introduced some "title only" bills into committee — essentially blank legislation with the details to be filled in later. They also held hearings on some bills with only two hours public notice, violating the intent of their own rules. Jason Mercier of the Washington Policy Center tells us why he wants to see more accountability in Olympia through greater legislative transparency.

 Also this hour: we talk with state senator David Frockt about the battle over finding more money for education in Washington state, urbanist Max Grinnell talks walking in the city, and the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra celebrates 70 years.
