Bill #5597

Official Bill Title:

Concerning the Washington voting rights act.

Un-Official Bill Title

Removing the rights of all people to be equal!

THIS IS A BAD BILL

Summary

Senate Bill 5597 sets up minority classes as protected classes of citizens with the right to declare that they are being discriminated against by redistricting lines and voting laws!

Why this matters

Senate Bill 5597 sets up minority classes as protected classes of citizens with the right to declare that they are being discriminated against by redistricting lines and voting laws without actually having to prove it. They can sue in court for this. This bill specifically does NOT include any white males from having equal standing by listing specifically who is protected. The only ones not listed are white males. They apparently do not have the right to sue on their own behalf! This is unconstitutional in our state! This bill has passed the Senate!
