SB 5070, the state omnibus reentry bill to salvage lives and reduce
recidivism for the benefit of offenders, their families, and our
communities, is in the House awaiting floor action before tomorrow’s cutoff
Please urge your representatives to help bring this important bill to a
vote, and to only support amendments that will mitigate unnecessarily harsh
sanctions and make the provision of needed housing and other services more
If you would like to see a copy of the bill, go to www.leg.wa.gov and click

address at this same web page.
Thank you for assisting in this critical effort, which is a key criminal
justice element in FCWPP’s 2007 legislative program.
