MOTION

0.Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

"NEW SECTION.  Sec. 1.  (1) The legislature finds that:

      (a) Through such initiatives as grants for high-demand career and technical education programs and participation in the Microsoft IT academy, the state has previously supported K-12 computer science education;

      (b) However, even though there were nearly sixty-five thousand student enrollments in high school computer science courses in the 2011-12 school year, more than half of those enrollments were in beginning or exploratory courses.  Fewer than twelve hundred students enrolled in AP computer science courses;

      (c) National studies of K-12 computer science education indicate that, in part because computer science is not treated as an academic subject, students may not perceive advanced computer science as relevant to their future academic or career success;

      (d) Public institutions of higher education have expanded capacity to grant certificates and degrees in computer science and related fields in response to high employer demand and high student demand.  Additional expansion and improvement will be dependent on new resources, updated equipment, and the availability of expert faculty;

      (e) Information technology job vacancies exist at all levels of training and education and across all industries that are critical to Washington's economy; and

      (f) Strategies are needed to support additional opportunities for Washington students to have careers in the innovative, technology-based or technology-enhanced industries located in our state.

      (2) Therefore the legislature intends to take additional steps to improve and expand access to computer science education, particularly in advanced courses that could prepare students for careers in the field.

Sec. 2.  RCW 28A.230.097 and 2008 c 170 s 202 are each amended to read as follows:

      (1) Each high school or school district board of directors shall adopt course equivalencies for career and technical high school courses offered to students in high schools and skill centers.  A career and technical course equivalency may be for whole or partial credit.  Each school district board of directors shall develop a course equivalency approval procedure.  Boards of directors must approve AP computer science courses as equivalent to high school mathematics or science, and must denote on a student's transcript that AP computer science qualifies as a math-based quantitative course for students who take the course in their senior year.  In order for a board to approve AP computer science as equivalent to high school mathematics, the student must be concurrently enrolled in or have successfully completed algebra II.

      (2) Career and technical courses determined to be equivalent to academic core courses, in full or in part, by the high school or school district shall be accepted as meeting core requirements, including graduation requirements, if the courses are recorded on the student's transcript using the equivalent academic high school department designation and title.  Full or partial credit shall be recorded as appropriate.  The high school or school district shall also issue and keep record of course completion certificates that demonstrate that the career and technical courses were successfully completed as needed for industry certification, college credit, or preapprenticeship, as applicable.  The certificate shall be either part of the student's high school and beyond plan or the student's culminating project, as determined by the student.  The office of the superintendent of public instruction shall develop and make available electronic samples of certificates of course completion."

      Senator Dammeier spoke in favor of adoption of the committee striking amendment.

SECOND READING

 

SECOND SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL NO. 1642, by House Committee on Appropriations (originally sponsored by Representatives Pettigrew, Springer, Habib, Holy, Ryu and Magendanz)

 

Establishing policies to support academic acceleration for high school students.

 

The measure was read the second time.

 

MOTION

 

Senator Litzow moved that the following committee striking amendment by the Committee on Ways & Means be adopted:

0.Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

"NEW SECTION.  Sec. 1.  (1) The legislature finds that progress is being made in making dual high school and college credit courses available for students:

      (a) Overall dual credit program enrollments increased by almost four percent between 2009 and 2012;

      (b) The number of dual credit programs offered by Washington high schools increased by almost fifteen percent between the 2009-10 school year and the 2011-12 school year; and

      (c) Dual credit program participation rates for low-income students increased more than fourteen percent between the 2009-10 school year and the 2011-12 school year.

      (2) However, the legislature further finds that more can be done to promote academic acceleration for all students and eliminate barriers, real or perceived, that may prevent students from enrolling in rigorous advanced courses, including dual credit courses.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 2.  A new section is added to chapter 28A.320 RCW to read as follows:

      (1) Each school district board of directors is encouraged to adopt an academic acceleration policy for high school students as provided under this section.

      (2) Under an academic acceleration policy:

      (a) The district automatically enrolls any student who meets the state standard on the high school statewide student assessment in the next most rigorous level of advanced courses offered by the high school.  Students who successfully complete such an advanced course are then enrolled in the next most rigorous level of advanced course, with the objective that students will eventually be automatically enrolled in courses that offer the opportunity to earn dual credit for high school and college.

      (b) The subject matter of the advanced courses in which the student is automatically enrolled depends on the content area or areas of the statewide student assessment where the student has met the state standard.  Students who meet the state standard on both end-of-course mathematics assessments are considered to have met the state standard for high school mathematics.  Students who meet the state standard in both reading and writing are eligible for enrollment in advanced courses in English, social studies, humanities, and other related subjects.

      (c) The district must notify students and parents or guardians regarding the academic acceleration policy and the advanced courses available to students.

      (d) The district must provide a parent or guardian with an opportunity to opt out of the academic acceleration policy and enroll a student in an alternative course.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 3.  A new section is added to chapter 28A.320 RCW to read as follows:

      (1) Subject to funds appropriated specifically for this purpose, the academic acceleration incentive program is established as provided in this section.  The intent of the legislature is that the funds awarded under the program be used to support teacher training, curriculum, technology, examination fees, and other costs associated with offering dual credit courses to high school students.

      (2) The office of the superintendent of public instruction shall allocate half of the funds appropriated for the purposes of this section on a competitive basis to provide one-time grants for high schools to expand the availability of dual credit courses.  To be eligible for a grant, a school district must have adopted an academic acceleration policy as provided under section 2 of this act.  In making grant awards, the office of the superintendent of public instruction must give priority to grants for high schools with a high proportion of low-income students and high schools seeking to develop new capacity for dual credit courses rather than proposing marginal expansion of current capacity.

      (3) The office of the superintendent of public instruction shall allocate half of the funds appropriated for the purposes of this section to school districts as an incentive award for each student who earned dual high school and college credit, as described under subsection (4) of this section, for courses offered by the district's high schools during the previous school year.  School districts must distribute the award to the high schools that generated the funds.  The award amount for low-income students eligible to participate in the federal free and reduced-price meals program who earn dual credits must be set at one hundred twenty-five percent of the base award for other students.  A student who earns more than one dual credit in the same school year counts only once for the purposes of the incentive award.

      (4) For the purposes of this section, the following students are considered to have earned dual high school and college credit in a course offered by a high school:

      (a) Students who achieve a score of three or higher on an AP examination;

      (b) Students who achieve a score of four or higher on an examination of the international baccalaureate diploma programme;

      (c) Students who successfully complete a Cambridge advanced international certificate of education examination;

      (d) Students who successfully complete a course through the college in the high school program under RCW 28A.600.290 and are awarded credit by the partnering institution of higher education; and

      (e) Students who satisfy the dual enrollment and class performance requirements to earn college credit through a tech prep course.

      (5) If a high school provides access to online courses for students to earn dual high school and college credit at no cost to the student, such a course is considered to be offered by the high school.  Students enrolled in the running start program under RCW 28A.600.300 do not generate an incentive award under this section.

      (6) The office of the superintendent of public instruction shall report to the education policy committees and the fiscal committees of the legislature, by January 1st of each year, information about the demographics of the students earning dual credits in the schools receiving grants under this section for the prior school year.  Demographic data shall be disaggregated pursuant to RCW 28A.300.042.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 4.  A new section is added to chapter 28A.300 RCW to read as follows:

      In addition to data on student enrollment in dual credit courses, the office of the superintendent of public instruction shall collect and post on the Washington state report card web site the rates at which students earn college credit through a dual credit course, using the following criteria:

      (1) Students who achieve a score of three or higher on an AP examination;

      (2) Students who achieve a score of four or higher on an examination of the international baccalaureate diploma programme;

      (3) Students who successfully complete a Cambridge advanced international certificate of education examination;

      (4) Students who successfully complete a course through the college in the high school program under RCW 28A.600.290 and are awarded credit by the partnering institution of higher education; and

      (5) Students who satisfy the dual enrollment and class performance requirements to earn college credit through a tech prep course; and

      (6) Students who successfully complete a course through the running start program under RCW 28A.600.300 and are awarded credit by the institution of higher education.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 5.  If specific funding for purposes of section 3 of this act, referencing section 3 of this act by bill or chapter and section number, is not provided by June 30, 2013, in the omnibus operating appropriations act, section 3 of this act is null and void."

The motion by Senator Litzow carried and the committee striking amendment was adopted by voice vote.

 

MOTION

(2) Identification of the products under subsection((s)) (1) ((and (2))) of this section ((shall)) must be made to the buyer at the point of sale such that the buyer can make an informed purchasing decision ((in purchasing)) for his or her protection, health, and safety.

Sec. 15.  RCW 39.10.385 and 2010 c 163 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

      As an alternative to the subcontractor selection process outlined in RCW 39.10.380, a general contractor/construction manager may, with the approval of the public body, select ((a)) mechanical subcontractors, ((an)) electrical subcontractors, or both, using the process outlined in this section.  This alternative selection process may only be used when the anticipated value of the subcontract will exceed three million dollars.  When using the alternative selection process, the general contractor/construction manager should select the subcontractor early in the life of the public works project.

      (1) In order to use this alternative selection process, the general contractor/construction manager and the public body must determine that it is in the best interest of the public.  In making this determination the general contractor/construction manager and the public body must:

      (a) Publish a notice of intent to use this alternative selection process in a legal newspaper published in or as near as possible to that part of the county where the public work will be constructed.  Notice must be published at least fourteen calendar days before conducting a public hearing.  The notice must include the date, time, and location of the hearing; a statement justifying the basis and need for the alternative selection process; ((and)) how interested parties may, prior to the hearing, obtain the evaluation criteria and applicable weight given to each criteria that will be used for evaluation; and protest procedures including time limits for filing a protest, which may in no event, limit the time to file a protest to fewer than four business days from the date the proposer was notified of the selection decision;

      (b) Conduct a hearing and provide an opportunity for any interested party to submit written and verbal comments regarding the justification for using this selection process, the evaluation criteria, ((and)) weights for each criteria, and protest procedures;

      (c) After the public hearing, consider the written and verbal comments received and determine if using this alternative selection process is in the best interests of the public; and

      (d) Issue a written final determination to all interested parties.  All protests of the decision to use the alternative selection process must be in writing and submitted to the public body within seven calendar days of the final determination.  Any modifications to the criteria ((and)), weights, and protest procedures based on comments received during the public hearing process must be included in the final determination.

      (2) Contracts for the services of a subcontractor under this section must be awarded through a competitive process requiring a public solicitation of proposals.  Notice of the public solicitation of proposals must be provided to the office of minority and women's business enterprises.  The public solicitation of proposals must include:

      (e) Protest procedures;
      (f) The form of the contract, including any contract for preconstruction services, to be awarded;

      (((f))) (g) The estimated maximum allowable subcontract cost; and

      (((g))) (h) The bid instructions to be used by the finalists.

      (3) Evaluation factors for selection of the subcontractor must include, but not be limited to:

      (a) Ability of the firm's professional personnel;

      (b) The firm's past performance on similar projects;

      (c) The firm's ability to meet time and budget requirements;

      (d) The scope of work the firm proposes to perform with its own forces and its ability to perform that work;

      (f) The firm's proximity to the project location;

      (g) The firm's capacity to successfully complete the project;

      (h) The firm's approach to executing the project;

      (i) The firm's approach to safety on the project;

      (j) The firm's safety history; and

      (k) If the firm is selected as one of the most qualified finalists, the firm's fee and cost proposal.

      (4) The general contractor/construction manager shall establish a committee to evaluate the proposals.  At least one representative from the public body shall serve on the committee.  Final proposals, including sealed bids for the percent fee on the estimated maximum allowable subcontract cost, and the fixed amount for the subcontract general conditions work specified in the request for proposal, will be requested from the most qualified firms.

(5) The general contractor/construction manager must notify all proposers of the most qualified firms that will move to the next phase of the selection process.  The process may not proceed to the next phase until two business days after all proposers are notified of the committee's selection decision.  At the request of a proposer, the general contractor/construction manager must provide the requesting proposer with a scoring summary of the evaluation factors for its proposal.  Proposers filing a protest on the selection of the most qualified finalists must file the protest with the public body in accordance with the published protest procedures.  The selection process may not advance to the next phase of selection until two business days after the final protest decision issued by the public body is transmitted to the protestor.
      (6) The general contractor/construction manager and the public body shall select the firm submitting the highest scored final proposal using the evaluation factors and the relative weight of factors identified in the solicitation of proposals. The scoring of the nonprice factors must be made available at the opening of the fee and cost proposals.  The general contractor/construction manager shall notify all proposers of the selection decision and make a selection summary of the final proposals, which shall be available to all proposers within two business days of such notification.  The general contractor/construction manager may not evaluate or disqualify a proposal based on the terms of a collective bargaining agreement.

      (((5))) (7) If the public body receives a timely written protest from a "most qualified firm," the general contractor/construction manager may not execute a contract for the protested subcontract work until two business days after the final protest decision issued by the public body is transmitted to the protestor.  The protestor must submit its protest in accordance with the published protest procedures.
      (8) If the general contractor/construction manager is unable to negotiate a satisfactory maximum allowable subcontract cost with the firm selected deemed by public body and the general contractor/construction manager to be fair, reasonable, and within the available funds, negotiations with that firm must be formally terminated and the general contractor/construction manager may negotiate with the next highest scored firm until an agreement is reached or the process is terminated.

      (((6) If the general contractor/construction manager receives a written protest from a bidder, it may not execute a contract for the subject work with anyone other than the protesting bidder, without first providing at least two full business days' written notice to all bidders of the intent to execute a contract for the subcontract bid package.  The protesting bidder must submit written notice to the general contractor/construction manager of its protest no later than two full business days following the bid opening.
      (7))) (9) With the approval of the public body, the general contractor/construction manager may contract with the selected firm to provide preconstruction services during the design phase that may include life-cycle cost design considerations, value engineering, scheduling, cost estimating, constructability, alternative construction options for cost savings, and sequencing of work; and to act as the mechanical or electrical subcontractor during the construction phase.

      (((8))) (10) The maximum allowable subcontract cost must be used to establish a total subcontract cost for purposes of a performance and payment bond.  Total subcontract cost means the fixed amount for the detailed specified general conditions work, the negotiated maximum allowable subcontract cost, and the percent fee on the negotiated maximum allowable subcontract cost.  Maximum allowable subcontract cost means the maximum cost to complete the work specified for the subcontract, including the estimated cost of work to be performed by the subcontractor's own forces, a percentage for risk contingency, negotiated support services, and approved change orders.  The maximum allowable subcontract cost must be negotiated between the general contractor/construction manager and the selected firm when the construction documents and specifications are at least ninety percent complete.  Final agreement on the maximum allowable subcontract cost is subject to the approval of the public body.

      (((9))) (11) If the work of the mechanical contractor or electrical contractor is completed for less than the maximum allowable subcontract cost, any savings not otherwise negotiated as part of an incentive clause becomes part of the risk contingency included in the general contractor/construction manager's maximum allowable construction cost.  If the work of the mechanical contractor or the electrical contractor is completed for more than the maximum allowable subcontract cost, the additional cost is the responsibility of that subcontractor.  An independent audit, paid for by the public body, must be conducted ((upon completion of the contract)) to confirm the proper accrual of costs as outlined in the contract.

      (((10))) (12) A mechanical or electrical contractor selected under this section may perform work with its own forces.  In the event it elects to subcontract some of its work, it must select a subcontractor utilizing the procedure outlined in RCW 39.10.380.

Sec. 16.  RCW 39.10.390 and 2007 c 494 s 306 are each amended to read as follows:

      (a) The work within the subcontract bid package or equipment or materials is customarily performed or supplied by the general contractor/construction manager;

      (b) The bid opening is managed by the public body and is in compliance with RCW 39.10.380; and

      (c) Notification of the general contractor/construction manager's intention to bid is included in the public solicitation of bids for the bid package or for the equipment or materials.

      (3) In no event may the general contractor/construction manager or its subsidiaries ((purchase equipment or materials for assignment to subcontract bid package bidders for installation or warranty)) assign warranty responsibility or the terms of its contract or purchase order with vendors for equipment or material purchases to subcontract bid package bidders or subcontractors who have been awarded a contract.  The value of subcontract work performed and equipment and materials supplied by the general contractor/construction manager may not exceed thirty percent of the negotiated maximum allowable construction cost.  Negotiated support services performed by the general contractor/construction manager shall not be considered subcontract work for purposes of this subsection.

Sec. 17.  RCW 39.10.400 and 2007 c 494 s 307 are each amended to read as follows:

      (1) If determination of subcontractor eligibility prior to seeking bids is in the best interest of the project and critical to the successful completion of a subcontract bid package, the general contractor/construction manager and the public body may determine subcontractor eligibility to bid.  The general contractor/construction manager and the public body must:

      (a) Conduct a hearing and provide an opportunity for any interested party to submit written and verbal comments regarding the justification for conducting bidder eligibility, the evaluation criteria, and weights for each criteria and subcriteria;

      (b) Publish a notice of intent to evaluate and determine bidder eligibility in a legal newspaper published in or as near as possible to that part of the county where the public work will be constructed at least fourteen calendar days before conducting a public hearing;

      (c) Ensure the public hearing notice includes the date, time, and location of the hearing, a statement justifying the basis and need for performing eligibility analysis before bid opening, and how interested parties may, at least five days before the hearing, obtain the specific eligibility criteria and applicable weights given to each criteria and subcriteria that will be used during evaluation;

      (d) After the public hearing, consider written and verbal comments received and determine if establishing bidder eligibility in advance of seeking bids is in the best interests of the project and critical to the successful completion of a subcontract bid package; and

      (e) Issue a written final determination to all interested parties.  All protests of the decision to establish bidder eligibility before issuing a subcontractor bid package must be filed with the superior court within seven calendar days of the final determination.  Any modifications to the eligibility criteria and weights shall be based on comments received during the public hearing process and shall be included in the final determination.

      (2) Determinations of bidder eligibility shall be in accordance with the evaluation criteria and weights for each criteria established in the final determination and shall be provided to interested persons upon request.  Any potential bidder determined not to meet eligibility criteria must be afforded ((the)) one opportunity to establish its eligibility.  Protests concerning bidder eligibility determinations shall be in accordance with subsection (1) of this section.

SENATE RESOLUTION
8655

By Senators Fraser, Hargrove, Honeyford, Kohl-Welles, King, Keiser, Tom, Kline, Parlette, Sheldon, Brown, Pearson, Murray, Dammeier, Mullet, Chase, Hill, Padden, Fain, Ranker, Baumgartner, Shin, Hobbs, Eide, Nelson, McAuliffe, Hasegawa, Conway, Harper, Schlicher, Darneille, Rivers, Cleveland, Rolfes, Becker, Schoesler, Holmquist Newbry, Braun, Roach, Litzow, Benton, Hewitt, Ericksen, and Smith

      WHEREAS, During May 2013, many Washingtonians will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the nationally and globally acclaimed successes of the 1963 American Mt. Everest Expedition, because Washington climbers achieved its most notable successes, and Washingtonians enthusiastically supported this historic achievement in many ways; and

      WHEREAS, Members of this Expedition are famed for four unprecedented mountaineering achievements:

      (1) On May 1, Jim Whittaker, a Washington State native, climbing with Sherpa Nawang Gombu by the South Col route, became the first American to reach Everest's 29,028 foot summit, the highest point on Earth;

      (2) On May 22, Willi Unsoeld, who would become a faculty member at The Evergreen State College, and Tom Hornbein, who returned from Everest to the faculty at the University of Washington School of Medicine, pioneered the unprecedented and exceptionally difficult West Ridge route to the summit and descended by the South Col route to complete the first traverse of a major Himalayan peak;

      (3) A few hours earlier that same day, Lute Jerstad, a former Washington resident, and Barry Bishop of Washington D.C. reached the summit by the South Col route; and

      (4) Both teams were benighted during the descent, Unsoeld and Hornbein catching up with Jerstad and Bishop.  All four survived an unplanned and unprecedented all-night bivouac above 28,000 feet without oxygen, tents, or food, and Unsoeld and Bishop suffered severe frostbite; and

      WHEREAS, These mountaineering achievements are successes of the human spirit, involving supreme human effort, extraordinary physical capability and endurance, clear vision and goals, intense determination and focus, superior teamwork, high tolerance for discomfort and danger, and exceptional organizational and logistical preparation; and

      WHEREAS, These mountaineering achievements are also the successes of the highly appreciated, dedicated, expert Sherpa climbers who accompanied and supported the members of the Expedition; and

      WHEREAS, Human survival at the upper elevations of Mt. Everest is possible only for brief periods of time because the air contains roughly one-third of the oxygen density of sea level, temperatures are generally around negative 20 degrees Fahrenheit, and hurricane force winds are frequent; and

      WHEREAS, Throughout the 109 days of the Expedition, the team steadily engaged in scientific research relating to physiology, psychology, sociology, geology, and glaciology; and

      WHEREAS,  The Expedition's worldwide acclaim included recognition by President Kennedy at a White House ceremony, by the National Geographic Society, by King Mahendra of Nepal, by the United States Ambassador to Nepal Henry Stebbins, by India Prime Minister Nehru, by the United States Ambassador to India John Kenneth Galbraith, by the Indian Mountaineering Foundation, by mountaineering organizations throughout the world, by major news media around the world, and more; and

      WHEREAS, The people of Washington State played a very significant role in the historic successes of the Expedition, through team members with deep Washington ties, including Barry Prather of Ellensburg and John Breitenbach who attended the University of Washington and tragically died when a massive wall of ice in the Khumbu icefall shifted and buried him in tons of ice blocks; through many contributions of cash and in-kind donations from Washington businesses, organizations, and individuals; through Washington State's United States Senator Warren G.  Magnuson serving on the Expedition's Advisory Committee; through the Expedition's training and equipment testing taking place at Mount Rainier; and more; and

      WHEREAS,  Washingtonians' outdoor recreation heritage of hiking, climbing, and camping in the State's extensive mountain ranges, and the widespread appreciation by Washingtonians of the State's beautiful mountains and stately snowy peaks, served as the inspiration for and enthusiastic support of the Expedition in 1963;

      NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That the Washington State Senate, on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the historic first American ascent of Mt. Everest:

      (1) Congratulate members of this historic Expedition Jim Whittaker, Nawang Gombu, Willi Unsoeld, Tom Hornbein, Lute Jerstad, Barry Bishop, and all those who supported them;

      (2) Express appreciation to all Washingtonians, to the hundreds of others from around the country who assisted its achievements, and to Norman G. Dyhrenfurth who, with his determination and genius, organized and led the Expedition; and

      (3) Encourage Washingtonians to continue to engage in outdoor recreation in Washington's welcoming mountain ranges and to continue to appreciate their splendor and be inspired to greatness by them; and

      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That copies of this resolution be immediately transmitted by the Secretary of the Senate to Jim Whittaker, Jolene Unsoeld, Tom Hornbein, Norman G. Dyhrenfurth, to the other four surviving members of the team, and to the surviving widows or nearest of kin of the team members now deceased.

      Senators Fraser, King, Baumgartner, Hargrove, Tom, Mullet and Kohl-Welles spoke in favor of adoption of the resolution.

      The President declared the question before the Senate to be the adoption of Senate Resolution No. 8655.

The motion by Senator Fraser carried and the resolution was adopted by voice vote.

INTRODUCTION OF SPECIAL GUESTS

 

The President welcomed and introduced Mr. Jim Whitaker, his wife Diane Roberts and former State Representative and U.S. Congresswoman Jolene Unsoeld who were seated at the rostrum.

With the permission of the Senate, business was suspended to allow Mr. Whitaker and Representative Unsoeld to offer remarks.

REMARKS BY JIM WHITTAKER

 

      Jim Whittaker: “Thank you very much. I’d just like to say good for you people for climbing a lot of mountains yourselves. Bobby Kennedy was a good friend of mine and we talked a lot about the most honorable profession. His brother thought it was the most honorable profession and so did Bobby. And I want to salute you with admiration for trying to make the world a better place and Washington State a better place. Thank you very much.”

REMARKS BY JOLENE UNSOELD

 

      Jolene Unsoeld: “Of course we all think Washington State is just a terrific place but I didn’t realize until Karen was doing the research for the resolution that ‘Wow, Washington State really was in there,’ at the core of it and spreading the good will between other countries, other climbers. And the United States and Washington supported the expedition all the way from the lowliest professions all the way up to some of our largest corporations here that are still doing great; REI, Eddie Bauer. It’s amazing what Washington State has done not only as a model for the whole United States but has specifically done in the area in mountaineering and the support for the fiftieth anniversary and for the actual expedition that climbed Mount Everest for the first time for the Americans and two routes. Thank you.”

 

PERSONAL PRIVILEGE

 

Senator Benton:  “I’d like to invite our colleagues and their staffs and anyone that may be interested to receive a free lunch and some information.

RULING BY THE PRESIDENT

 

President Owen: In ruling on the Point of Inquiry raised by Senator Hargrove as to whether Substitute House Bill No. 1422 amends Initiative 1183 so as to require a 2/3 vote on final passage, the President finds and rules as follows:

Initiative 1183 privatized the sale of spirits, allowing certain private retailers to sell the product.  Substitute House Bill No. 1422 makes changes to the current eligibility criteria that must be met by a grocery store in order to provide beer and wine samples, by making certain aspects of the endorsement consistent with the terms of the initiative.  The endorsement that allows beer and wine sampling was already in statute prior to the passage of the initiative, and was not amended or otherwise altered by the initiative.

Substitute House Bill No. 1422 does not amend the language of the initiative nor even address the issue of the sale of spirits. For these reasons, the President finds that Substitute House Bill No.  1422 would not amend Initiative 1183, and will require only a Constitutional majority vote on final passage.”

 

The Senate resumed consideration of Substitute House Bill No. 1422 which had been deferred earlier in the day.

 

Senators Hargrove and Darneille spoke against passage of the bill.

Senator Conway spoke in favor of passage of the bill.

 

MOTION

 

On motion of Senator Billig, Senator Kline was excused.

 

The President declared the question before the Senate to be the final passage of Substitute House Bill No. 1422.

      Voting yea: Senators Bailey, Baumgartner, Becker, Billig, Braun, Brown, Cleveland, Conway, Eide, Ericksen, Fain, Harper, Hatfield, Hewitt, Hill, Hobbs, Holmquist Newbry, Honeyford, Keiser, King, Kohl-Welles, Litzow, McAuliffe, Mullet, Murray, Ranker, Rivers, Schoesler, Sheldon, Shin, Smith and Tom

MOTION

 

Senator Murray moved that the Senate advance to the ninth order of business.

POINT OF ORDER

 

Senator Schoesler:  “Thank you Mr. President, I object. Thank you Mr. President. Am I correct that the motion we are considering is only procedural to advance to the ninth order of business and nothing further as a non-debatable motion? Could you clarify this motion for me?”

 

REPLY BY THE PRESIDENT

 

President Owen:  “Senator Schoesler, advancing to the ninth order of business is not debatable. However, the practice of the President has always been that he allows a statement on each side for and against the motion.”

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT

 

President Owen: “Senator Murray, for a clarification for the President, your motion is to move to the ninth order of business. Did you add for this specific purpose in your motion?”

 

REPLY BY SENATOR MURRAY

 

Senator Murray:  “Yes, those two bills.”

 

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT

 

President Owen: “Senator Murray, you can place those in the motion if you like. However, it does not limit anybody to just those two bills once you get to the ninth order.”

 

Senator Schoesler spoke against the motion.

Senator Murray spoke in favor of the motion.

 

The President declared the question before the Senate to be the motion by Senator Murray to advance to the ninth order of business.

Authorizing state-tribal education compact schools.

 

The measure was read the second time.

 

MOTION

 

Senator Litzow moved that the following committee striking amendment by the Committee on Ways & Means be adopted:

0.Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

"NEW SECTION.  Sec. 1.  (1) The legislature finds that:

      (a) American Indian and Alaska Native students make up 2.5 percent of the total student population in the state and twenty-five percent or more of the student population in fifty-seven schools across the state.

      (b) American Indian students in Washington have the highest annual drop-out rate at 9.5 percent, compared to 4.6 percent of all students in each of grades nine through twelve.  Of the students expected to graduate in 2010 because they entered the ninth grade in 2006, the American Indian on-time graduation rate was only fifty-eight percent, compared to 76.5 percent of all students.

      (c) The teaching of American Indian language, culture, and history are important to American Indian people and critical to the educational attainment and achievement of American Indian children.

      (d) The state-tribal education compacts authorized under this chapter reaffirm the state's important commitment to government-to-government relationships with the tribes that has been recognized by proclamation, and in the centennial accord and the millennium agreement.  These state-tribal education compacts build upon the efforts highlighted by the office of the superintendent of public instruction in its 2012 Centennial Accord Agency Highlights, including:  The Since Time Immemorial (STI):  Tribal Sovereignty in Washington State Curriculum Project that imbeds the history surrounding sovereignty and intergovernmental responsibilities into this state's classrooms; the agency's regular meetings with the superintendents of the seven current tribal schools, as well as the federal bureau of Indian education representatives at the regional and national level on issues relating to student academic achievement, accessing of funding for tribal schools, and connecting tribal schools to the K-20 network; and the recent establishment, in statute, of the office of native education within the office of the superintendent of public instruction.

      (e) School funding should honor tribal sovereignty and reflect the government-to-government relationship between the state and the tribes, however the current structure that requires negotiation of an interlocal agreement between a school district and a tribal school ignores tribal sovereignty and results in a siphoning of funds for administration that could be better used for teaching and learning.

      (2) The legislature further finds that:

      (a) The need for high-quality, culturally competent early learning opportunities continues to grow;

      (b) There is a preparation gap among entering kindergartners with many children, especially those from low-income homes, arriving at kindergarten without the knowledge, skills, and good health necessary to succeed in school;

      (c) Upon entry into the K-12 school system, the educational opportunity gap becomes more evident, with children of color and from low-income homes having lower scores on math, reading, and writing standardized tests, as well as lower graduation rates and higher rates of dropping out of school; and

      (d) Comprehensive, culturally competent early learning and greater collaboration between the early learning and K-12 school systems will ensure appropriate connections and smoother transitions for children, and help eliminate or bridge gaps that might otherwise develop.

      (3) In light of these findings, it is the intent and purpose of the legislature to:

      (a) Authorize the superintendent of public instruction to enter into state-tribal education compacts; and

      (b) Foster the development of a voluntary, high-quality, and culturally competent early learning pilot program to work in conjunction with, and offer a seamless transition to, schools established pursuant to state-tribal education compacts.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 2.  (1) The superintendent of public instruction is authorized to enter into state-tribal education compacts.

      (2) No later than six months after the effective date of this section, the superintendent of public instruction shall establish an application and approval process, procedures, and timelines for the negotiation, approval or disapproval, and execution of state-tribal education compacts.

      (3) The process may be initiated by submission, to the superintendent of public instruction, of a resolution by:

      (a) The governing body of a tribe in the state of Washington; or

      (b) The governing body of any of the schools in Washington that are currently funded by the federal bureau of Indian affairs, whether directly or through a contract or compact with an Indian tribe or a tribal consortium.

      (4) The resolution must be accompanied by an application that indicates the grade or grades from kindergarten through twelve that will be offered and that demonstrates that the school will be operated in compliance with all applicable laws, the rules adopted thereunder, and the terms and conditions set forth in the application.

      (5) Within ninety days of receipt of a resolution and application under this section, the superintendent must convene a government-to-government meeting for the purpose of considering the resolution and application and initiating negotiations.

      (6) State-tribal education compacts must include provisions regarding:

      (a) Compliance;

      (b) Notices of violation;

      (c) Dispute resolution, which may include nonjudicial processes such as mediation;

      (d) Recordkeeping and auditing;

      (e) The delineation of the respective roles and responsibilities;

      (f) The term or length of the contract, and whether or not it is renewable; and

      (g) Provisions for compact termination.

      (7) The superintendent of public instruction shall adopt such rules as are necessary to implement this chapter.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 3.  (1) A school that is the subject of a state-tribal education compact must operate according to the terms of its compact executed in accordance with section 2 of this act.

      (2) Schools that are the subjects of state-tribal education compacts are exempt from all state statutes and rules applicable to school districts and school district boards of directors, except those statutes and rules made applicable under this chapter and in the state-tribal education compact executed under section 2 of this act.

      (3) Each school that is the subject of a state-tribal education compact must:

      (a) Provide a curriculum and conduct an educational program that satisfies the requirements of RCW 28A.150.200 through 28A.150.240 and 28A.230.010 through 28A.230.195;

      (b) Employ certificated instructional staff as required in RCW 28A.410.010, however such schools may hire noncertificated instructional staff of unusual competence and in exceptional cases as specified in RCW 28A.150.203(7);

      (c) Comply with the employee record check requirements in RCW 28A.400.303 and the mandatory termination and notification provisions of RCW 28A.400.320, 28A.400.330, 28A.405.470, and 28A.405.475;

      (d) Comply with nondiscrimination laws;

      (e) Adhere to generally accepted accounting principles and be subject to financial examinations and audits as determined by the state auditor, including annual audits for legal and fiscal compliance; and

      (f) Be subject to and comply with legislation enacted after the effective date of this section governing the operation and management of schools that are the subject of a state-tribal education compact.

      (4) No such school may engage in any sectarian practices in its educational program, admissions or employment policies, or operations.

      (5) Nothing in this chapter may limit or restrict any enrollment or school choice options otherwise available under Title 28A RCW.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 4.  (1) A school that is the subject of a state-tribal education compact may not charge tuition except to the same extent as school districts may be permitted to do so with respect to out-of-state and adult students pursuant to chapter 28A.225 RCW, but may charge fees for participation in optional extracurricular events and activities.

      (2) Such schools may not limit admission on any basis other than age group, grade level, or capacity and must otherwise enroll all students who apply.

      (3) If capacity is insufficient to enroll all students who apply, a school that is the subject of a state-tribal education compact may prioritize the enrollment of tribal members and siblings of already enrolled students.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 5.  (1) A school that is the subject of a state-tribal education compact must report student enrollment.  Reporting must be done in the same manner and use the same definitions of enrolled students and annual average full-time equivalent enrollment as is required of school districts.  The reporting requirements in this subsection are required for a school to receive state or federal funding that is allocated based on student characteristics.

      (2) Funding for a school that is the subject of a state-tribal education compact shall be apportioned by the superintendent of public instruction according to the schedule established under RCW 28A.510.250, including general apportionment, special education, categorical, and other nonbasic education moneys.  Allocations for certificated instructional staff must be based on the average staff mix ratio of the school, as calculated by the superintendent of public instruction using the statewide salary allocation schedule and related documents, conditions, and limitations established by the omnibus appropriations act.  Allocations for classified staff and certificated administrative staff must be based on the salary allocations of the school district in which the school is located, subject to conditions and limitations established by the omnibus appropriations act.  Nothing in this section requires a school that is the subject of a state-tribal education compact to use the statewide salary allocation schedule.  Such a school is eligible to apply for state grants on the same basis as a school district.

      (3) Any moneys received by a school that is the subject of a state-tribal education compact from any source that remain in the school's accounts at the end of any budget year must remain in the school's accounts for use by the school during subsequent budget years.

      (4) Schools that are the subject of state-tribal education compacts are encouraged to conduct early learning pilot programs developed under section 9 of this act in conjunction with their school programs for kindergarten and beyond.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 6.  A new section is added to chapter 28A.642 RCW to read as follows:

      Nothing in this chapter prohibits schools established under chapter 28A.--- RCW (the new chapter created in section 9 of this act) from:

      (1) Implementing a policy of Indian preference in employment; or

      (2) Prioritizing the admission of tribal members where capacity of the school's programs or facilities is not as large as demand.

Sec. 7.  RCW 49.60.400 and 1999 c 3 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

      (2) This section applies only to action taken after December 3, 1998.

      (c) Provides for separate athletic teams for each sex.

      (5) This section does not invalidate any court order or consent decree that is in force as of December 3, 1998.

      (6) This section does not prohibit action that must be taken to establish or maintain eligibility for any federal program, if ineligibility would result in a loss of federal funds to the state.

Sec. 8.  RCW 84.52.0531 and 2012 1st sp.s. c 10 s 8 are each amended to read as follows:

      (d) "Initiative 732 base" means the prior year's state allocation for annual salary cost-of-living increases for district employees in the state-funded salary base as it would have been calculated under chapter 4, Laws of 2001, if each annual cost-of-living increase allocation had been provided in previous years and in each subsequent year.

Sec. 501 et seq., or state service members' civil relief act, chapter 38.42 RCW, eviction, homelessness, the death of the alleged violator or of an immediate family member, or if the alleged violator did not receive a toll charge bill or notice of civil penalty are valid mitigating circumstances.  All of these reasons that constitute mitigating circumstances must occur within a reasonable time of the alleged toll violation.  In response to these circumstances, the adjudicator may reduce or dismiss the civil penalty.

      (6) The use of a photo toll system is subject to the following requirements:

      (a) Photo toll systems may take photographs, digital photographs, microphotographs, videotapes, or other recorded images of the vehicle and vehicle license plate only.

      (b) A notice of civil penalty must include with it a certificate or facsimile thereof, based upon inspection of photographs, microphotographs, videotape, or other recorded images produced by a photo toll system, stating the facts supporting the notice of civil penalty.  This certificate or facsimile is prima facie evidence of the facts contained in it and is admissible in a proceeding established under subsection (5) of this section.  The photographs, digital photographs, microphotographs, videotape, or other recorded images evidencing the toll nonpayment civil penalty must be available for inspection and admission into evidence in a proceeding to adjudicate the liability for the civil penalty.

      (c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, all photographs, digital photographs, microphotographs, videotape, other recorded images, or other records identifying a specific instance of travel prepared under this ((chapter)) section are for the exclusive use of the tolling agency for toll collection and enforcement purposes and are not open to the public and may not be used in a court in a pending action or proceeding unless the action or proceeding relates to a civil penalty under this ((chapter)) section.  No photograph, digital photograph, microphotograph, videotape, other recorded image, or other record identifying a specific instance of travel may be used for any purpose other than toll collection or enforcement of civil penalties under this section.  Records identifying a specific instance of travel by a specific person or vehicle must be retained only as required to ensure payment and enforcement of tolls and to comply with state records retention policies.

      (d) All locations where a photo toll system is used must be clearly marked by placing signs in locations that clearly indicate to a driver that he or she is entering a zone where tolls are assessed and enforced by a photo toll system.

      (e) Within existing resources, the department of transportation shall conduct education and outreach efforts at least six months prior to activating an all-electronic photo toll system.  Methods of outreach shall include a department presence at community meetings in the vicinity of a toll facility, signage, and information published in local media.  Information provided shall include notice of when all electronic photo tolling shall begin and methods of payment.  Additionally, the department shall provide quarterly reporting on education and outreach efforts and other data related to the issuance of civil penalties.

(f) The envelope containing a toll charge bill or related notice issued pursuant to RCW 47.46.105 or 47.56.795, or a notice of civil penalty issued under this section, must prominently indicate that the contents are time sensitive and related to a toll violation.

      (7) Civil penalties for toll nonpayment detected through the use of photo toll systems must be issued to the registered owner of the vehicle identified by the photo toll system, but are not part of the registered owner's driving record under RCW 46.52.101 and 46.52.120.

      (8) The civil penalty for toll nonpayment detected through the use of a photo toll system is forty dollars plus the photo toll and associated fees.

      (9) Except as provided otherwise in this subsection, all civil penalties, including the photo toll and associated fees, collected under this section must be deposited into the toll facility account of the facility on which the toll was assessed.  However, through June 30, 2013, civil penalties deposited into the Tacoma Narrows toll bridge account created under RCW 47.56.165 that are in excess of amounts necessary to support the toll adjudication process applicable to toll collection on the Tacoma Narrows bridge must first be allocated toward repayment of operating loans and reserve payments provided to the account from the motor vehicle account under section 1005(15), chapter 518, Laws of 2007.  Additionally, all civil penalties, resulting from nonpayment of tolls on the state route number 520 corridor, shall be deposited into the state route number 520 civil penalties account created under section 4, chapter 248, Laws of 2010 but only if chapter 248, Laws of 2010 is enacted by June 30, 2010.

      (10) If the registered owner of the vehicle is a rental car business, the department of transportation shall, before a toll bill is issued, provide a written notice to the rental car business that a toll bill may be issued to the rental car business if the rental car business does not, within thirty days of the mailing of the written notice, provide to the issuing agency by return mail:

      (a) A statement under oath stating the name and known mailing address of the individual driving or renting the vehicle when the toll was assessed; or

      (b) A statement under oath that the business is unable to determine who was driving or renting the vehicle at the time the toll was assessed because the vehicle was stolen at the time the toll was assessed.  A statement provided under this subsection must be accompanied by a copy of a filed police report regarding the vehicle theft; or

      (c) In lieu of identifying the vehicle operator, the rental car business may pay the applicable toll and fee.

      Timely mailing of this statement to the issuing agency relieves a rental car business of any liability under this section for the payment of the toll.

      (11) Consistent with chapter 34.05 RCW, the department of transportation shall develop rules to implement this section.

      (12) For the purposes of this section, "photo toll system" means the system defined in RCW 47.56.010 and 47.46.020."

      (2) The department of health shall make available a noncertified copy of the original birth certificate of a child to the child's birth parents upon request.

      (3)(a) For adoptions finalized after October 1, 1993, the department of health shall ((make available)) provide a noncertified copy of the original birth certificate to ((the adoptee after the adoptee's eighteenth birthday unless the birth parent has filed an affidavit ofnondisclosure)) an adoptee eighteen years of age or older upon request, unless the birth parent has filed an affidavit of nondisclosure before the effective date of this section or a contact preference form that indicates he or she does not want the original birth certificate released:  PROVIDED, That the affidavit of nondisclosure, the contact preference form, or both have not expired.

(b) For adoptions finalized on or before October 1, 1993, the department of health may not provide a noncertified copy of the original birth certificate to the adoptee until after June 30, 2014.  After June 30, 2014, the department of health shall provide a noncertified copy of the original birth certificate to an adoptee eighteen years of age or older upon request, unless the birth parent has filed a contact preference form that indicates he or she does not want the original birth certificate released:  PROVIDED, That the contact preference form has not expired.
      (c) An affidavit of nondisclosure expires upon the death of the birth parent.

(4)(a) Regardless of whether a birth parent has filed an affidavit of nondisclosure or when the adoption was finalized, a birth parent may at any time complete a contact preference form stating his or her preference about personal contact with the adoptee, which, if available, must accompany an original birth certificate provided to an adoptee under subsection (3) of this section.
      (b) The contact preference form must include the following options:
      (i) I would like to be contacted.  I give the department of health consent to provide the adoptee with a noncertified copy of his or her original birth certificate;
      (ii) I would like to be contacted only through a confidential intermediary as described in RCW 26.33.343.  I give the department of health consent to provide the adoptee with a noncertified copy of his or her original birth certificate;
      (iii) I prefer not to be contacted and have completed the birth parent updated medical history form.  I give the department of health consent to provide the adoptee with a noncertified copy of his or her original birth certificate; and
      (iv) I prefer not to be contacted and have completed the birth parent updated medical history form.  I do not want a noncertified copy of the original birth certificate released to the adoptee.
      (c) If the birth parent indicates he or she prefers not to be contacted, personally identifying information on the contact preference form must be kept confidential and may not be released.
      (d) Nothing in this section precludes a birth parent from subsequently filing another contact preference form to rescind the previous contact preference form and state a different preference.
      (e) A contact preference form expires upon the death of the birth parent.
      (5) If a birth parent files a contact preference form, the birth parent must also file an updated medical history form with the department of health.  Upon request of the adoptee, the department of health must provide the adoptee with the updated medical history form filed by the adoptee's birth parent.
      (6) Both a completed contact preference form and birth parent updated medical history form are confidential and must be placed in the adoptee's sealed file.
      (7) If a birth parent files a contact preference form within six months after the first time an adoptee requests a copy of his or her original birth certificate as provided in subsection (3) of this section, the department of health must forward the contact preference form and the birth parent updated medical history form to the address of the adoptee.
      (8) The department of health may charge a fee not to exceed twenty dollars for providing a noncertified copy of a birth certificate to an adoptee.
      (9) The department of health must create the contact preference form and an updated medical history form.  The contact preference form must provide a method to ensure personally identifying information can be kept confidential.  The updated medical history form may not require the birth parent to disclose any identifying information about the birth parent.
      (10) If the department of health does not provide an adoptee with a noncertified copy of the original birth certificate because a valid affidavit of nondisclosure or contact preference form has been filed, the adoptee may request, no more than once per year, that the department of health attempt to determine if the birth parent is deceased.  Upon request of the adoptee, the department of health must make a reasonable effort to search public records that are accessible and already available to the department of health to determine if the birth parent is deceased.  The department of health may charge the adoptee a reasonable fee to cover the cost of conducting a search."

MOTION

 

Senator Litzow moved that the following committee striking amendment by the Committee on Ways & Means be adopted:

0.Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

"NEW SECTION.  Sec. 1.  The legislature finds that preserving a safe and beneficial learning environment for all students requires the establishment and enforcement of appropriate student discipline policies.  The legislature further finds that although physical restraint and isolation of a student should be avoided, there may be circumstances where school district boards of directors have authorized these actions to preserve the safety of other students and school staff.  Nevertheless, if an incident of student restraint or isolation occurs, school personnel should be held accountable for providing a thorough explanation of the circumstances.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 2.  A new section is added to chapter 28A.600 RCW to read as follows:

      (1) The definitions in this subsection apply throughout this section unless the context clearly requires otherwise.

      (a) "Isolation" means excluding a student from his or her regular instructional area and restricting the student alone within a room or any other form of enclosure, from which the student may not leave.

      (b) "Restraint" means physical intervention or force used to control a student, including the use of a restraint device.

      (c) "Restraint device" means a device used to assist in controlling a student, including but not limited to metal handcuffs, plastic ties, ankle restraints, leather cuffs, other hospital-type restraints, pepper spray, tasers, or batons.

      (2) The provisions of this section apply only to any restraint of a student who has an individualized education program or plan developed under section 504 of the rehabilitation act of 1973 that results in a physical injury to a student or a staff member, any restraint of a student who has an individualized education program or plan developed under section 504 of the rehabilitation act of 1973, and any isolation of a student who has an individualized education program or plan developed under section 504 of the rehabilitation act of 1973.  The provisions of this section apply only to incidents of restraint or isolation that occur while a student who has an individualized education program or plan developed under section 504 of the rehabilitation act of 1973 is participating in school-sponsored instruction or activities.

      (3) Following the release of a student from the use of restraint or isolation, the school must implement follow-up procedures.  These procedures must include reviewing the incident with the student and the parent or guardian to address the behavior that precipitated the restraint or isolation and reviewing the incident with the staff member who administered the restraint or isolation to discuss whether proper procedures were followed.

      (4) Any school employee, resource officer, or school security officer who uses any chemical spray, mechanical restraint, or physical force on a student during school-sponsored instruction or activities must inform the building administrator or building administrator's designee as soon as possible, and within two business days submit a written report of the incident to the district office.  The written report should include, at a minimum, the following information:

      (a) The date and time of the incident;

      (b) The name and job title of the individual who administered the restraint or isolation;

      (c) A description of the activity that led to the restraint or isolation;

      (d) The type of restraint or isolation used on the student, including the duration; and

      (e) Whether the student or staff was physically injured during the restraint or isolation and any medical care provided.

      (5) The principal or principal's designee must make a reasonable effort to verbally inform the student's parent or guardian within twenty-four hours of the incident, and must send written notification as soon as practical but postmarked no later than five business days after the restraint or isolation occurred.  If the school or school district customarily provides the parent or guardian with school- related information in a language other than English, the written report under this section must be provided to the parent or guardian in that language.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 3.  A new section is added to chapter 28A.155 RCW to read as follows:

      A school that is required to develop an individualized education program as required by federal law must include within the plan procedures for notification of a parent or guardian regarding the use of restraint or isolation.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 4.  A new section is added to chapter 28A.600 RCW to read as follows:

      Parents and guardians of children who have individualized education programs or plans developed under section 504 of the rehabilitation act of 1973 must be provided a copy of the district policy on the use of isolation and restraint at the time that the program or plan is created."

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 27.  A new section is added to chapter 19.290 RCW to read as follows:

      (1) The following personal property is subject to seizure and forfeiture and no property right exists in them:  All personal property including, but not limited to, any item, object, tool, substance, device, weapon, machine, vehicle of any kind, money, security, or negotiable instrument, which the seizing agency proves by a preponderance of the evidence was used or intended to be used by its owner or the person in charge to knowingly or intentionally facilitate the commission of, or to knowingly or intentionally abet the commission of, a crime involving theft, trafficking, or unlawful possession of commercial metal property, or which the seizing agency proves by a preponderance of the evidence was knowingly or intentionally furnished or was intended to be furnished by any person in the commission of, as a result of, or as compensation for the commission of, a crime involving theft, trafficking, or the unlawful possession of commercial metal property, or which the property owner acquired in whole or in part with proceeds traceable to a knowing or intentional commission of a crime involving the theft, trafficking, or unlawful possession of commercial metal property provided that such activity is not less than a class C felony; except that:

      (a) No vehicle used by any person as a common carrier in the transaction of business as a common carrier is subject to forfeiture under this section unless the seizing agency proves by a preponderance of the evidence that the owner or other person in charge of the vehicle is a consenting party or is privy to any crime involving theft, trafficking, or the unlawful possession of commercial metal property;

      (b) A forfeiture of property encumbered by a bona fide security interest is subject to the interest of the secured party if the secured party neither had actual or constructive knowledge of nor consented to the commission of any crime involving the theft, trafficking, or unlawful possession of commercial metal property; and

      (c) A property owner's property is not subject to seizure if an employee or agent of that property owner uses the property owner's property to knowingly or intentionally facilitate the commission of, or to knowingly or intentionally aid and abet the commission of, a crime involving theft, trafficking, or unlawful possession of commercial metal property, in violation of that property owner's instructions or policies against such activity, and without the property owner's knowledge or consent.

      (2) The following real property is subject to seizure and forfeiture and no property right exists in them:  All real property, including any right, title, and interest in the whole of any lot or tract of land, and any appurtenances or improvements, that the seizing agency proves by a preponderance of the evidence are being used with the knowledge of the owner for the intentional commission of any crime involving the theft, trafficking, or unlawful possession of commercial metal property, or which have been acquired in whole or in part with proceeds traceable to the commission of any crime involving the trafficking, theft, or unlawful possession of commercial metal, if such activity is not less than a class C felony and a substantial nexus exists between the commission of the violation or crime and the real property.  However:

      (a) No property may be forfeited pursuant to this subsection (2), to the extent of the interest of an owner, by reason of any act or omission committed or omitted without the owner's actual or constructive knowledge; and further, a property owner's real property is not subject to seizure if an employee or agent of that property owner uses the property owner's real property to knowingly or intentionally facilitate the commission of, or to knowingly or intentionally aid and abet the commission of, a crime involving theft, trafficking, or unlawful possession of commercial metal property, in violation of that property owner's instructions or policies against such activity, and without the property owner's knowledge or consent; and

      (b) A forfeiture of real property encumbered by a bona fide security interest is subject to the interest of the secured party if the secured party, neither had actual or constructive knowledge, nor consented to the act or omission.

      (3) Property subject to forfeiture under this chapter may be seized by any law enforcement officer of this state upon process issued by any superior court having jurisdiction over the property.  Seizure of real property shall include the filing of a lis pendens by the seizing agency.  Real property seized under this section shall not be transferred or otherwise conveyed until ninety days after seizure or until a judgment of forfeiture is entered, whichever is later:  PROVIDED, That real property seized under this section may be transferred or conveyed to any person or entity who acquires title by foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure of a security interest.  Seizure of personal property without process may be made if:

      (a) The seizure is incident to an arrest or a search under a search warrant; or

      (b) The property subject to seizure has been the subject of a prior judgment in favor of the state in a criminal injunction or forfeiture proceeding.

      (4) In the event of seizure pursuant to this section, proceedings for forfeiture shall be deemed commenced by the seizure.  The law enforcement agency under whose authority the seizure was made shall cause notice to be served within fifteen days following the seizure on the owner of the property seized and the person in charge thereof and any person having any known right or interest therein, including any community property interest, of the seizure and intended forfeiture of the seized property.  Service of notice of seizure of real property shall be made according to the rules of civil procedure.  However, the state may not obtain a default judgment with respect to real property against a party who is served by substituted service absent an affidavit stating that a good faith effort has been made to ascertain if the defaulted party is incarcerated within the state, and that there is no present basis to believe that the party is incarcerated within the state.  The notice of seizure of personal property may be served by any method authorized by law or court rule including but not limited to service by certified mail with return receipt requested.  Service by mail shall be deemed complete upon mailing within the fifteen day period following the seizure.  Notice of seizure in the case of property subject to a security interest that has been perfected by filing a financing statement in accordance with chapter 62A.9A RCW, or a certificate of title shall be made by service upon the secured party or the secured party's assignee at the address shown on the financing statement or the certificate of title.

      (5) If no person notifies the seizing law enforcement agency in writing of the person's claim of ownership or right to possession of items specified in subsection (1) of this section within forty-five days of the seizure in the case of personal property and ninety days in the case of real property, the item seized shall be deemed forfeited.  The community property interest in real property of a person whose spouse or domestic partner committed a violation giving rise to seizure of the real property may not be forfeited if the person did not participate in the violation.

      (6) If a person notifies the seizing law enforcement agency in writing of the person's claim of ownership or right to possession of the seized property within forty-five days of the seizure in the case of personal property and ninety days in the case of real property, the law enforcement agency shall give the person or persons a reasonable opportunity to be heard as to the claim or right.  The hearing shall be before the chief law enforcement officer of the seizing agency or the chief law enforcement officer's designee, except where the seizing agency is a state agency as defined in RCW 34.12.020(4), the hearing shall be before the chief law enforcement officer of the seizing agency or an administrative law judge appointed under chapter 34.12 RCW, except that any person asserting a claim or right may remove the matter to a court of competent jurisdiction.  Removal may only be accomplished according to the rules of civil procedure.  The person seeking removal of the matter must serve process against the state, county, political subdivision, or municipality that operates the seizing agency, and any other party of interest, in accordance with RCW 4.28.080 or 4.92.020, within forty-five days after the person seeking removal has notified the seizing law enforcement agency of the person's claim of ownership or right to possession.  The court to which the matter is to be removed shall be the district court when the aggregate value of the property is within the jurisdictional limit set forth in RCW 3.66.020.  A hearing before the seizing agency and any appeal therefrom shall be under Title 34 RCW.  In a court hearing between two or more claimants to the property involved, the prevailing party shall be entitled to a judgment for costs and reasonable attorneys' fees.  The burden of producing evidence shall be upon the person claiming to be the lawful owner or the person claiming to have the lawful right to possession of the property.

      (7) At the hearing, the seizing agency has the burden of proof to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that seized property is subject to forfeiture, and that the use or intended use of the seized property in connection with a crime pursuant to this section occurred with the owner's actual or constructive knowledge or consent.  The person claiming to be the lawful owner or the person claiming to have the lawful right to possession of the property has the burden of proof to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that the person owns or has a right to possess the seized property.  The possession of bare legal title is not sufficient to establish ownership of seized property if the seizing agency proves by a preponderance of the evidence that the person claiming ownership or right to possession is a nominal owner and did not actually own or exert a controlling interest in the property.

      The seizing law enforcement agency shall promptly return the property to the claimant upon a determination by the administrative law judge or court that the claimant is the present lawful owner or is lawfully entitled to possession of the property.

      (8) When property is forfeited under this chapter, after satisfying any court-ordered victim restitution, the seizing law enforcement agency may:

      (a) Retain it for official use or, upon application by any law enforcement agency of this state, release such property to such agency; or

      (b) Sell that which is not required to be destroyed by law and which is not harmful to the public.

      (9)(a) Within one hundred twenty days after the entry of an order of forfeiture, each seizing agency shall remit to, if known, the victim of the crime involving the seized property, an amount equal to fifty percent of the net proceeds of any property forfeited.

      (b) Retained property and net proceeds not required to be paid to victims shall be retained by the seizing law enforcement agency exclusively for the expansion and improvement of law enforcement activity.  Money retained under this section may not be used to supplant preexisting funding sources.

      (c) The net proceeds of forfeited property is the value of the forfeitable interest in the property after deducting the cost of satisfying any bona fide security interest to which the property is subject at the time of seizure; and in the case of sold property, after deducting the cost of sale, including reasonable fees or commissions paid to independent selling agents, and the cost of any valid landlord's claim for damages.

      (d) The value of sold forfeited property is the sale price.  The value of retained forfeited property is the fair market value of the property at the time of seizure, determined when possible by reference to an applicable commonly used index, such as the index used by the department of licensing for valuation of motor vehicles.  A seizing agency may use, but need not use, an independent qualified appraiser to determine the value of retained property.  If an appraiser is used, the value of the property appraised is net of the cost of the appraisal.  The value of destroyed property and retained firearms or illegal property is zero.

      (10) Upon the entry of an order of forfeiture of real property, the court shall forward a copy of the order to the assessor of the county in which the property is located.  Orders for the forfeiture of real property shall be entered by the superior court, subject to court rules.  Such an order shall be filed by the seizing agency in the county auditor's records in the county in which the real property is located.

NEW SECTION.  Sec. 28.  A new section is added to chapter 19.290 RCW to read as follows:
