The town hall time and location on the 16th is:
Rivers, Vick and Hoff will provide an update on the 2019 session and then take questions from attendees.
Freshman Rep. Larry Hoff has been busy learning the ropes as one of the newest lawmakers, and his bill to create a short form death certificate in Washington state has been unanimously approved by the state House.
Substitute House Bill 1799 would allow state and local registrars to issue a short form death certificate that does not list a decedent’s Social Security number, the names of their parents, or information about the cause and manner of their death. Those who would be able to request a short form include:
- Specified family members, guardians and representatives;
- Funeral directors or establishments;
- A title insurer or title insurance agent handling a transaction involving property in which the decedent held a right, title or interest; and
- A person who demonstrates that the certified copy is necessary for a determination related to the death, or for the protection of a personal or property right related to the death.
