On an ongoing basis, Section Committees consider possible new legislation or changes to existing legislation affecting areas of law within the purview of each Committee. This consideration includes review of proposals by the ABA with respect to model acts and by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws with respect to uniform acts.
From time to time, Committees propose legislation to be sponsored by the Section after consideration and approval by the Executive Committee.
In addition, the Section is often called upon to comment with respect to bills that have been introduced in the Legislature by others.
With the approval of the Executive Committee and in accordance with the rules of the WSBA, Section members on occasion testify before the Legislature with respect to pending legislation.
