2024 Legislative Session Recap

Each Washington State legislative session brings new policy changes impacting our state’s intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) community. From January to March 2024, there was a short 60 day legislative session where many bills officially supported by The Arc of Washington State passed into law.

The Arc of Snohomish County created the annual Legislative Recap resource to dive into the new laws that passed and how they impact the IDD community. This resource also includes bills that did not pass this year, taking a look at continued advocacy focal points moving forward into future legislative sessions. The 20 minute 2024 Legislative Recap video presentation is now available on The Arc of Snohomish County’s Vimeo. Tune in to the recorded presentation or view the slides for highlights from the legislative session, updates on passed bills including the Nothing About Us Without Us Act, and information on how to get involved and make a difference in Washington State policy. Thank you for all of your advocacy!
