Legislative Session 2020

What GPR has done: The WSASP GPR committee has reviewed new 2020 legislation, identified priorities based on the WSASP mission and vision of advocating for our profession and for students (see priority definitions below), and consulted with our WEA Lobbyist on all bills identified as a priority.  An interesting theme emerging is around policy for school based health clinics, as well as continued attention to student’s mental health in a variety of contexts. If you are interested, you can view all identified bills we monitored here.

Our priorities are defined as follows:

HIGH PRIORITY: These bills are tracked by the committee. The WEA Lobbyist will sign in on our behalf at public hearings when we cannot attend ourselves. In addition, the committee will provide written testimony and input throughout the legislative process. This might include a call to action for all WSASP members. Finally, committee members are committed to providing testimony on these bills.

MEDIUM PRIORITY: These bills are tracked by the committee. The WEA Lobbyist will sign in on our behalf at public hearings when we cannot attend ourselves. In addition, the committee will provide written testimony and input throughout the legislative process. This might include a call to action for all WSASP members. Finally, committee members will provide testimony in person if possible.

LOW PRIORITY: These bills are tracked by the committee. The WEA Lobbyist will sign in on our behalf at public hearings when we cannot attend ourselves. Should the need arise, the committee is prepared to dedicate more resources to these bills which could include written testimony, a call to action for WSASP members, or providing testimony.
