This was in the latest email from Disability Rights Washington.

HB 1889, a bill that would create an independent corrections ombuds in Washington, is on the calendar for a hearing in the House Public Safety Committee on January 15, 2018 at 1:30. If you are in Olympia, please come sign in support of this important legislation. HB 1889 is sponsored by Rep. Pettigrew but it had bipartisan support last year and we are hopeful we will see it pass this session!

The full text of the bill can be found at: http://lawfilesext.leg.wa.gov/bienni...lls/1889-S.pdf

If you cannot make it to Olympia but want to sign in support, you can submit your online comments here: https://app.leg.wa.gov/pbc/bill//1889

So now the suggestion is to contract out a heavily biased group who has the ability to cherry pick cases. Meanwhile, the state struggles to fund officer safety programs.
