MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNOR
April 25, 2017
To the Honorable Speaker and Members,
The House of Representatives of the State of Washington
Ladies and Gentlemen:
I am returning herewith, without my approval, Substitute House Bill No. 1877 entitled:
łAN ACT Relating to the release of driving record abstract information affecting registered tow truck operators.´
This bill prohibits actions committed by registered tow truck operators while fulfilling their occupational duties from being included in the driver record abstract requested by and submitted to insurance carriers, provided the operator has not been issued a citation. The intent and policy of this bill is identical to Section 2 of Substitute Senate Bill 5343, which I previously signed into law on April 17, 2017. This bill creates a duplication in the law and is therefore unnecessary.
For these reasons I have vetoed Substitute House Bill No. 1877 in its entirety.
There being no objection, the House advanced to the fourth order of business.

HB 2207 by Representatives MacEwen and Taylor

There being no objection, the bill listed on the day’s introduction sheet under the fourth order of business was referred to the committee so designated.
There being no objection, the House adjourned until 9:55 a.m., April 28, 2017, the 5th Day of the 1st Special Session.
