Corry Introduces Bill To Reform Gubernatorial Emergency Powers

Washington 14th District State Representative Chris Corry has introduced legislation to reform the Governor’s emergency powers.  Corry says House Bill 1772 would give the Legislature more of a voice during extended emergencies, such as the current pandemic emergency that was declared by Governor Jay Inslee in late February of 2020.  Under Corry’s bill, states of emergency longer than 60 days would require legislative involvement, either by the full membership of both chambers or its leadership.  The bill is co-sponsored by a number of Republican representatives.
