Email your Representatives below and ask them to pass SB 5236

The safe staffing bill, SB 5236, was amended and passed through the state Senate and is now working its way through the House of Representatives. This bill is a critical step towards progress as it finally creates the necessary enforcement and accountability for hospital staffing plans. We must hold hospitals accountable and ask the legislature to pass our safe staffing bill, SB 5236, so it can make its way to the Governor’s desk for signing.

Legislator voting records

WSNA's legislator voting records are developed based on the priority bills we supported during a given year's Washington state legislative session. Not all WSNA priority bills are always voted on in both chambers, which is why the list of bills tracked on the report may differ from Senate to House. As the voting records indicate, most nursing issues have bipartisan support in Olympia.
