While Washington’s Student Press Rights Bill passed in the State Senate (SB 5064) in the recent session, it stalled in the House Education Committee during its caucus, and a vote was not taken. The Bill now has gone back to the Senate Rules Committee for another push in the 2017-18 session. Newspapers around the state have given their public support on their editorial pages, including The Seattle Times and in The (Everett) Herald.
