May 10, 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 as to Section Sec. 6, Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill No. 1612 entitled:
łAN ACT Relating to a public health educational platform for suicide prevention and strategies to reduce access to lethal means.´
This section is the same as the language in Section 2 of Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill 5552. Because SB 5552 also includes a couple of additional changes unrelated to the language in this bill, the Code Reviser advises this action so the RCW is clear. I support the policy and am glad that is fully contained in the other bill.
For these reasons I have vetoed Section Sec. 6 of Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill No. 1612.
With the exception of Section Sec. 6, Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill No. 1612 is approved.
There being no objection, the House advanced to the fourth order of business.

Referred to Committee on Rules.
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., May 15, 2017, the 22nd Day of the 1st Special Session.
FRANK CHOPP, Speaker
BERNARD DEAN, Chief Clerk
