Have a Heart for Kids Day 2020

2016 Legislative Session

The 2016 Legislature convened at the Washington State Capitol on Monday, January 11 and adjourned Friday, March 11.

This 60-day session was shorter than those that take place in odd-numbered years, but no matter the duration, the laws passed in any session have enormous potential to help—or hurt—Washington’s kids.

That’s why each year we advocate with persistence and passion to protect kids and build a better future for all.
