HB 1479 was signed into law by the Governor last Friday, April 22, 2011 and will take effect 90 days after the Session’s adjournment. The new law will affect how the RCW, the WAC, and Washington state session laws are published and distributed. Also see the LLOPS Government Relations page for more information.  

“The purpose of this act is to promote widespread access to legal and public information materials produced by the statute law committee in both digital and print formats while responding to a changing marketplace where sale of paper copies no longer supports the printing of copies intended for free distribution.”   

–Chapter 156 section 1, Laws of 2011
