McCabe Bill Looks To Get Rape Kits Tested

Washington 14th District Representative Gina McCabe is hoping her bill to get a backlog of six-thousand untested rape kits in the state examined will be allowed to move forward.  The bill recently received a committee hearing, and it requires the state to get the tests processed, even if it is done through a private-public funding mechanism.  McCabe notes the bill also contains a provision for rural hospitals to have access to nurses who have expertise in dealing with sexual assault cases.
