I’m pleased to report that the Courthouse Protection Bill
my first Attorney General-Request legislation, has passed the Senate!
Senate Bill 5484 extends the protections currently granted to some
courthouse, legal and law enforcement personnel to all citizens who
visit Washington courthouses. This bipartisan measure, which garnered
wide support from law enforcement, prosecutors and victims’ advocates,
is now moving through the House of Representatives under the leadership
of Rep. Roger Goodman, (D-Kirkland)
Since being sworn in as the 18th Attorney General of Washington, it’s been a busy few weeks! As I become better acquainted with the inner workings of the office, and the vast range of cases and legal issues we’re involved with, I’m pleased to report the rumors are true – the Attorney General’s Office has a fantastic staff, an impressive pool of talent and an outstanding reputation as both a legal and administrative leader among public law firms.
