Human Composting, Vape Tax: See The Laws Inslee Signed This Week

OLYMPIA, WA Gov. Jay Inslee signed over 50 new laws this week, including the state's next biennial operating budget. The bills cover a range of issues, from wolf management to taxing vape products.

Here are a some of the more interesting bills Inslee signed:

Homeless students, SB 5324

This law requires each school building to have a single point-of-contact for students experiencing homelessness. Before this law was signed, a school had to have a minimum of 10 homeless students for there to be a point-of contact. Also establishes a grant program for school districts working to end student homelessness.

I-405, SR 167 tolling and bonding

Allows WSDOT to issue $1.5 billion in bonds for work on the Puget Sound Gateway Program, which creates a corridor between the Port of Tacoma all the way up to I-405. Also makes the I-405 and SR 167 toll lanes permanent.

Real Estate Excise Tax, SB 5998

Changes the state's real estate excise tax from a flat 1.28 percent. The new schedule is as follows:

1.1 percent on sales equal or less than $500,000

1.28 percent on sales equal to $500,000 up to $1.5 million

2.75 percent on sales between $1.5 million and $3 million

3 percent on sale greater than $3 million

Elected officials financial affairs, HB 1195


The state Public Disclosure Commission will be able to publish the financial disclosure forms of elected officials. Lawmakers had tried to stop the PDC from doing this. Crosscut has the weird story on how they tried to do that.
