Weekly Roll Call Report for the Lake Stevens Journal & Granite Falls Press
Dear Subscriber: the enclosed roll call report corrects an error in the report we sent earlier, which showed SB 5282 as the sponsor identification bill. It should, in fact, be SB 5258. We apologize for the error and any inconvenience it might have caused.

Senate Bill 5258, Senate Bill 5258: Requiring top-five sponsor identification when political committee advertising costs on ballot measures reach a cumulative $1,000. Passed the House on April 15, 2013 by a vote of 72-25. The bill has passed both houses.
The bill provides that a political committee must list the names of its five largest contributors on broadcasted or written advertising that supports or opposes a ballot measure when the cumulative value of the committee's advertisements about that ballot measure is at least $1,000. Yard signs, and other forms of advertising where identification is impractical, such as campaign buttons, balloons, pens, pencils, skywriting, and inscriptions, are exempt from the sponsor identification requirement.
