URGENT: Should TPCBA take a position regarding bill ESHB 1788?

Members,

The state Supreme Court and the WSBA are re-evaluating the structure of the WSBA in light of recent federal decisions and lawsuits in other states. Meanwhile, the Washington State Legislature is working on a bill, ESHB 1788 https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=1788&Year=2019&Initiative=False which would repeal the state Bar Act https://app.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=2.48&full=true and replace it with a structure under the state Supreme Court.

This survey seeks to determine if you have an opinion on this, and if you believe the Tacoma- Pierce County Bar Association should take a position regarding the legislation.

Please click the survey link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ESHB1788  and return it by 4:00 PM on Wednesday, April 3.

Thank you.

TPCBA Board of Trustees
