Mosbrucker Introduces Third Missing Indigenous Persons Bill

Washington 14th District State Representative Gina Mosbrucker has introduced legislation to help tribal and law enforcement authorities work together to solve cases involving missing and murdered indigenous persons.   House Bill 1571, or “The Bring Them Home Bill,” follows up on two other bills on the subject the Goldendale Republican has introduced and helped pass over the past three years.  Mosbrucker says this bill has five parts, including establishing an Amber Alert-type system.  She adds this bill is being introduced now to set it up for consideration in the 2022 legislative session.  The bill also allows tribal members to pray over a deceased indigenous person without compromising the scene before an autopsy is conducted.
