Washington State Legislature – Executive Actions
(May 10, 2019)

Six cannabis-related bills are not yet signed into law.

Washington’s regular legislative session adjourned sine die on Sunday April 28th. A special legislative session has not been called by Governor Jay Inslee.

Throughout the 2019 session, Cannabis Observer summarized legislative activity on cannabis-related bills including the house of origin, committee report, opposite house, and sine die cutoffs; and executive actions as of last Friday. Of the eleven cannabis-related bills passed by the legislature this year, five have been signed into law while six await executive action in the coming days. Should the Governor take no action within this time, the bills become law without his signature. The Office of the Governor’s bill action page lists scheduled executive actions and actions previously taken.

Here are some observations on the eleven cannabis-related bills delivered to the Governor.
