SPOKANE, Washington – On June 6, more than 310 laws will go into effect in Washington state that have the potential to have a significant impact on residents.

Chase with the police

One notable change will occur in Washington that affects law enforcement. The law states that officers may conduct high-speed chases if they have reasonable suspicion that the person has violated a law.

This law requires the police to instead require reasonable suspicion to have committed a specific crime, such as violent crimes, sexual crimes, driving under the influence of alcohol or attempting to evade arrest.

Firearms

Washington does not allow the possession of firearms in public libraries, zoos, aquariums, or transit facilities.

Possession of a firearm in any of these areas will be considered a serious offense by the state starting Thursday.

Human remains

The amount of time a morgue must keep an unclaimed body in the state has been reduced. The new time frame, from 90 to 45 days, is intended to help limited cold storage facilities that have reached maximum capacity.

Parental rights

From June 6, over 300 laws will come into force, including the Parents’ Bill of Rights and the shackling of pigs



Parental rights will come into force, giving parents the right to inspect school material and opt out of assignments that include questions about their children’s sexual experiences and religious beliefs.

The aim of the law is to support parents in actively participating in their child’s education.

Pork ties

Police are no longer allowed to shackle people they arrest. In Washington, shackling means tying a person’s shackled ankles to their shackled wrists, rendering them unable to move.

In many districts and offices in Washington, the tying of pigs is already prohibited.

Living together

In Washington, small, independently rented units or rooms with shared kitchens and living spaces will again be allowed. Dorm-style living was banned by some local governments and will now be legal across the state.

The law is intended to reduce housing costs and offer people a cheaper alternative.
