Congratulations are due to citizens for their citizen activism! Citizens can make changes to law through hard work and dogged pursuit to better the lives of people trying to work and live under the regulatory system.
COOMWA, a citizens’ action group formed to protect citizens use and management of their septic systems, along with Citizens’ Alliance for Property Rights have worked to promote and ultimately have passed, a bill in the state legislature. SB 5503, sponsored by Senators Das, Fortunato, Takko has been through the legislative process in Olympia, and is now law! Here is a link to the bill Certification of Enrollment as passed the legislature on March 6, 2019!
