Mosbrucker Domestic Violence/Workplace Bill Headed To Governor

The Washington State Senate has unanimously passed and sent to the governor a bill authored by 14th District Representative Gina Mosbrucker that would create a task force on domestic violence and workplace resources to identify the role of the workplace in helping to curb domestic violence.  Under House Bill 1315, the Department of Commerce would convene a task force on domestic violence and workplace resources, getting input from representatives of various groups.  For the past three years, the bill has passed the House with a unanimous vote.  Mosbrucker originally introduced the legislation as House Bill 1056 in 2019.  The measure passed the House in 2019, but didn’t survive in the Senate in the first year.  In 2020, it passed both chambers of the Legislature, but was one of 147 bills to be vetoed last year by Gov. Jay Inslee in an effort to save money as the COVID-19 pandemic was just beginning to spread across Washington.  Now in its second trip to the governor’s desk, Mosbrucker is optimistic it will be signed.
