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.”

These days it seems that everyone is obsessed with the upcoming royal wedding. I myself am eager to rate the millinery selections. There have been all sorts of odd homages to the royal couple. The most bizarre has to be the Papa John’s “I Dough” pizza with Prince William and Kate Middleton’s visages fashioned from mozzarella, green peppers, pepperoni and various other pizza toppings. As a colleague pointed out, what will it look like once it is baked?
Turns out some librarians at the Everett Public Library wanted to create their own tribute to the royal family, so they knitted lilliputian versions of them. Apparently, the idea wasn’t all their own. Someone actually authored a book entitled “Knit Your Own Royal Wedding,” so you too can knit your best guess as to what Kate’s surely stunning wedding dress will look like. Frankly, the royal family looks adorable in small scale, and they’re currently on display at the library.
