Subject: Please Pass 2SHB 1166 Out of Committee
Dear Members of the Senate Rules Committee:
I am writing to urge your support for 2SHB 1166, Supporting Sexual Assault Survivors, sponsored by Representative Tina Orwall. I urge the Committee to pass 2SHB 1166 out of committee without delay.
The public safety imperative for enacting 2SHB 1166 is critical for Washington State. With the enactment of 2SHB 1166, Washington State will further the critical advancement of our state’s ongoing rape kit reform campaign and begin to deliver long-delayed justice for all sexual assault survivors. With the enactment of 2SHB 1266, Washington State will further establish the potential for identifying DNA matches and identifying an untold number of serial rapists, thereby leading to the potential for indictments and prosecutions. By passing 2SHB 1166 out of committee, Washington State will eliminate its rape kit backlog and establish a Survivors’ Bill of Rights. Passing 2SHB1166 out of committee will further advance a critical justice imperative for all survivors. These critical justice and public safety imperatives demand the continuation of Representative Orwall’s legislative rape kit reform campaign by passing 2SHB 1166 out of committee and enacting this vital legislation.
Thank you for your time and consideration of this critical legislation.
