The Tiffany Hill Act

Sen. Lynda Wilson's SB 5149, "The Monitoring of Domestic Violence Perpetrators", passed unanimously in the Senate and goes next to the Governor to sign. The bill allows for real-time monitoring of certain criminals and provides alerts based on their proximity. The bill is named in honor of  Tiffany Hill, a Marine Corps veteran, who was murdered by her estranged husband despite having a restraining order in place.

Government Accountability

Senator Wilson sponsored SB 6041, which prohibits the use of "Title Only Bills", a deceptive practice allowing government to undermine transparency to the voters.

The Walla Walla Union Bulletin noted that “Title-only bills are essentially a scam that circumvents the state constitution, which mandates all pieces of legislation must be introduced at least 10 days before the end of a legislative session so the public has time to be heard before it is approved into law.”

Small Business Bill of Rights

In 2017, Senator Wilson's first senate bill was SB 5230, known as the Small Business Bill of Rights. Last year she introduced its sequel, SB 6408, which enhances those rights. “No business owner wants to run afoul of state-agency regulations and get hit with a fine or some other punitive action following an inspection or some other interaction with government,” This bill improves relations between regulators and employers through better communication, more transparency and the use of best practices.

Discriminatory Taxes

Sen. Lynda Wilson, R-Vancouver, introduced Senate Bill 5147 to exempt menstrual products from the state sales tax. She’s been aiming to advance this policy since she first introduced it in the House in 2015 during her tenure there. It’s wrong for the government to profit off women’s periods. Tampons and pads are essential to half the population, yet Washington is among the 31 states that still impose sales tax on these items.
