In the News: Bill to extend hate crime protections to police officers moves forward in state Senate

By Kaitlin Bain, Yakima Herald

A bill that would make crimes or threats against police officers because of their job hate crimes moved forward in the state Senate on Tuesday.

The bill, which is now scheduled for a second reading by the the Washington Senate rules committee, was first read about a month ago after being introduced by seven senators.

These sponsors included Senator Jim Honeyford, who represents District 15, which includes part of Yakima and much of the lower valley to Grandview, and Senator Judy Warnick, who represents District 13, which runs along Interstate 90 from Snoqualmie Pass to several miles outside Spokane and includes Ellensburg and Moses Lake.
