Take Action Today by 1pm - Conservative Ladies of WA

SB 5179 is scheduled for a vote Friday at 1:00 PM

SB 5179, the expansion to Washington's Death with Dignity Act will likely be voted on Friday 3/24/23 by your House Representatives.  
Remind them that SB 5179 DOES NOT protect life, nor is it compassionate care for our neighbors with terminal illnesses. "Please vote no!"

Please email your representatives and ask them to vote no. Action Center (

SB 5179  increases access to the “Death with Dignity Act” by decreasing the waiting period from 15 days to 7 days and allowing for a wide range of providers to prescribe lethal drugs that can be sent via mail. This is NOT compassionate care. 

Click the button below to send an email or CALL the legislative hotline at 1-800-562-6000. The operator will ask which bill you're calling about, identify your representative and ask your message..."vote no". It's very quick and easy!

*If you'd like to email every representative, reply to this email and ask for the list of all 98 of them. Constituent pressure is a powerful tool in this process - let's use it!



Message from Rep Mike Volz, Gun Bills

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Many of you have contacted my office to offer your comments and frustration over several bills that will negatively impact our Second Amendment rights. As of today, there are two bills still moving through the legislative process that I want to bring to your attention:

  • House Bill 1240 is the so-called “assault weapons” ban, which would ban the sale, production or transfer of some of the most popular semi-auto firearms. It contains an emergency clause that goes into effect immediately after the governor signs it. This legislation goes against a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision and the upcoming federal district court ruling on the California “assault weapons ban,” which most believe will be overturned. If this ban goes into effect, it would have a greater impact on law-abiding citizens than the individuals who commit crimes.
  • House Bill 1143 would impair your right to buy, sell or keep arms. The measure would impose various training and testing requirements on law-abiding gun owners and retailers before they can exercise their constitutional rights.

Both bills were voted out of the House by the majority party with no Republican support. However, it is not too late to share your thoughts, opinions or testimony on these bills. They are scheduled for a public hearing tomorrow (Thursday) at 8 a.m. in the Senate Law and Justice Committee.

To testify, submit written testimony, or have your position noted for the legislative record on House Bill 1240 click here.

To testify, submit written testimony, or have your position noted for the legislative record on House Bill 1143 click here.

I hope you have the opportunity to share your thoughts and opinions on these two bills. Please let me know if you have question or concerns.

CAPR Legislative Update March 20, 2023

CAPR Legislative Update

March 20, 2023

Emergency Bill of Concern!!!

SB 5077 Will open the door to a Central Bank Digital Currency! Other states have rejected this bill, and so should Washington. Make your legislature understand this will harm freedom and individual autonomy!

SB 5077 has passed the Senate and will now be heard in the House tomorrow!

March 21   Scheduled for public hearing in the House Committee on Civil Rights & Judiciary at 10:30 AM (Subject to change).

Here is the link for providing various types of testimony:

This bill has come to my attention because a number of people are firmly opposed to it and have contacted CAPR.  CAPR will be CON and oppose the bill, I don’t believe a bill of this import should be taken lightly or passed without strict scrutiny. I do not think that level of scrutiny has been undertaken. Lets stop this bill and cause legislators and the public to take a sober look at this bill.

We need people with expertise on banking and banking systems (the Uniform Commercial Code) to look at the changes in law this bill would usher in regarding the use of digital currency as managed by federal law, but as established in state law. The bill seems to have to do with creating a federal central bank “CDBC” which means a central bank digital currency. 

SB 5077 would change state law as related to digital currency in various transactions.

HB 1013 would create regional apprenticeship programs for high school students. Rep. Maycumber has called it "Running Start for the Trades." She states, "There is a substantial need for for the next generation of electricians, carpenters, masons, plumbers, HVAC workers and more. We need to encourage them to explore new opportunities and expose them to trades and careers they may have never thought of before." The bill will create a pilot program with five regional apprenticeships, three on the West side of the state and two on the East side of the state. For more information regarding the bill, click here.

We encourage you to also provide written testimony IN OPPOSITION to HB 1469The public hearing on this bill is scheduled for 8:00 this morning in the Senate Law & Justice Committee. This bill makes Washington a "sanctuary state" for minors coming from other states for abortion and/or gender-mutilation procedures. HB 1469 would not allow parents in other states to take legal action if their child comes to Washington for these atrocities and it would also leave taxpayers responsible to pay for these "protected health care services." The bill also has an emergency clause that would allow it to take effect as soon as the bill is passed.

Senate committee March 14 @ 1:30 pm

Public Hearing

  1. ESHB 1048 - Enhancing the Washington voting rights act. (Remote Testimony Available). - Testify

 "Washington Voting Rights Act" which would allow special rights to special groups, allow non-citizens to vote and arbitrarily penalize certain groups of people. This would further erode election integrity in the state of Washington!  CON

House committee Mar. 14 @ 1:30pm

Public Hearing

  1. ESSB 5207 - Concerning campaign contributions by controlled entities. (Remote Testimony Available). - Testify

Controlled entities and owners considered one donor unless LLC files statements.  NEUTRAL

  1. SSB 5182 - Concerning procedures and deadlines for candidate filing. (Remote Testimony Available). - Testify

Moves the candidate filing week up to the first week of May.  Makes the election calendar deadlines more crowded. This is leading up to a general change in candidate filing to a much earlier filing time and a much earlier Primary election date.  CON

House committee Mar 10 @ 8am

Public Hearing

  1. ESSB 5082 - Encouraging electoral participation and making ballots more meaningful by abolishing advisory votes. (Remote Testimony Available). - Testify

Removes advisory votes on taxing issues from the ballot.  CON

  1. E2SSB 5112 - Updating processes related to voter registration. (Remote Testimony Available). - Testify

 Another Election Fraud Bill! By automatically registering EVERYONE to vote at the DOL and other State Gov. offices, it will further corrupt the voter rolls with ineligible voters. These voters are shared with * ERIC (a 3rd party national centralized data base) and can be used (in other states) by nefarious actors adjusting the name and / or mailing address ever so slightly. These types of bills are appearing all over the US, Colorado, etc. and are coming from the national level, many are written by Voting Machine Vendors, Nat. Assoc of SOS / Auditors, Special Interest Lobby Groups, etc. It also takes away dates of birth of the registered voter and replaces it with only the year of birth on any PRR which makes proving fraudulent duplicate voters virtually impossible! By design this Election law also makes voter challenges and cleaning the voter rolls much more difficult!

  1. ESSB 5152 - Defining synthetic media in campaigns for elective office, and providing relief for candidates and campaigns. (Remote Testimony Available). - Testify

Advertising, political, synthetic media used by candidates, regulating how manipulated pictures or recordings can be used. Looks like a possible GOOD proposal.

  1. SSB 5208 - Updating the process for online voter registration by allowing voter applicants to provide the last four digits of social security number for authentication. (Remote Testimony Available). - Testify

It is very inexpensive to get social security numbers and then submit false voter registrations.  Regular forms of ID would no longer be required for on-line registrations. A city councilman in CA used their online voter registration system to submit ballots for his own election because the online registrations do not get double checked as a regular routine.   CON

  1. ESSB 5284 - Concerning campaign finance disclosure. (Remote Testimony Available). -Testify

Changes the PDC filing dates and re-defines a foreign corporation and who/what can purchase ads in a campaign.  Over-all it makes PDC reporting more confusing except for an expert in PDC laws.  CON
