The Washington state “Spring Blade” (Switchblade) Knife Ban Repeal bill, SB 5782, was reported out the House Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee by a 12-3 vote with a “do pass” recommendation. Next step would be a vote by the full House. We will let you know when it is time to contact House members.
Thanks to the hundreds of Washingtonians who used Knife Rights’ Legislative Action Center to email the committee members. It had a huge impact!.
Knife Rights would also like to thank Committee Chair Christine Kilduff for allowing the bill to come for a vote and Ranking Member Morgan Irwin for his support.
Knife Rights’ has helped enact 16 Switchblade Ban or Restriction Repeals since 2010: Alaska, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, Nevada, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
