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.

The Legislature adjourned Sine Die on March 10, marking the end of the 2022 Washington State Legislative session.

Despite the challenges, nurses showed up with a loud and clear voice and we have significant wins to show for it. Read about the broader budget and policy successes in WSNA’s End of Session Report.
