The WSBA Legislative Review Committee (WLRC) meets several times during the fall. Its primary purpose is to ensure that WSBA-request legislation meets GR 12 and is vetted both internally and externally. Bar-request legislation typically emanates from a WSBA section. The committee may also consider non-WSBA proposals submitted to the committee for the purpose of seeking bar input and support. If the committee votes to recommend approval of a bar-request bill, or support of a non-WSBA proposed bill, the proposal is submitted to the Board of Governors in November for formal approval or support. WSBA-request bills approved by the Board are introduced in the next legislative session.
