Washington state legislation to expand student press rights, referenced in my 1.27.2007 posting
, passed the House today by a vote of 57-38. It advances immediately to the State Senate, where it will likely be referred to the Judiciary Committee and allowed a public hearing. House Democrats voted overwhelmingly in favor of the bill, HB-1307, with Republicans unanimously opposed. Given the 35-19 Democratic advantage in the Senate, prospects of passage appear sound.
