I have attended two stakeholder meetings to discuss this draft legislation, which will be reviewed at a public hearing with the Health Care & Wellness Committee in Olympia on Monday, January 9th, 2012.  Additional information regarding the public hearing can be found by clicking here!  

WAPROCA has submitted a detailed response to Rep. Tina Orwall (33rd Legislative District), who graciously facilitated the two stakeholder meetings.  The outline of our response, including comments, concerns, and recommendations will be posted shortly.

Please let me know if you would like to join us at this public hearing.

Review of this draft legislation, and our response, will be reviewed at our next General Meeting, on Thursday, January 12, 2012 - 6PM-7:30PM.  For more information about attending our General Meeting, please go to
