(DIGEST AS PASSED LEGISLATURE)
Extends the period for phasing in the additional nine judges to July 1, 2006.
VETO MESSAGE ON SB 6180-S
March 30, 1996
To the Honorable President and Members,
The Senate of the State of Washington
Ladies and Gentlemen:
I am returning herewith, without my approval, Substitute Senate Bill No. 6180 entitled:
"AN ACT Relating to superior court judges;"
Substitute Senate Bill No. 6180 extends a statutory deadline for King County to add unfilled positions for superior court judges originally authorized by legislation in 1992. Substitute House Bill No. 2446, which I have approved, contains a similar amendment and also adds judgeships in Spokane, Thurston, Chelan, and Douglas counties. Substitute Senate Bill No. 6180 would create confusion with the more comprehensive bill, Substitute House Bill No. 2446, already signed into law.
For this reason, I have vetoed Substitute Senate Bill No. 6180 in its entirety.
