About Bill Tracking

This is a bill tracking list used by the AIA Washington Council to monitor Washington state legislation.

How is the list organized?

The Bill Tracking Summary is divided into four priority categories (High, Medium, Low and TBD) indicating how much effort the Council puts into working on the proposals. The TBD category includes bills for which further review is necessary in order for the AIA|WA to take a position.

Each bill is also given a support rating: Support, Oppose, Concerns, Neutral, or Monitor. Neutral bills are ones that the Council has an interest in its progress, but has actively decided not to support or oppose. Bills under the “monitor” position are tracked and no position has been developed by the Council. Bills with “Concerns” have provisions the AIA/WA may not be able to support. “Status” refers to a bills status in the legislative process. For more information on bills visit: www.leg.wa.gov.

When is a bill up for consideration?

Calendar Items show which bills are being actively considered by the Legislature in the upcoming week. The “TVW” designation indicates those actions that will be covered by Television Washington. Most broadcasts are available for a podcast/MP3 download. Visit www.tvw.org.
