    The hearing went fine. The bill was read by a staffer who did a good job summarizing it, and then the Senator who sponsored it tried to discuss it without much luck.
    There was one question from a senator...since the bill reads "military vehicles" she wanted to know if it was about tracked vehicles. The staffers said, no, primarily HUMVEES.
    Due to a full schedule, I was limited to 90 seconds. I was the only speaker on the bill.
    When finished, the chairman asked if I was talking about getting an up-armored HMMWV...I said no, I couldn't afford one. That got laughs.

    I stressed the points I made earlier here refuting some of the gross misconceptions held by the WSP staffer I spoke with.
    Also, I heard from SEMA, they submitted written testimony.

    We'll See what happens. If all else fails...I have a"Plan B".

    Thanks four your help.

    Just go to az and get a title like GL.
    Everything above is my two cents worth. If it offends you, well, deep breath.

    Being a life long Washington resident I'd be surprised if they authorized these "assault vehicles" on the road. They are camo you know! Scary!!

    Seq...
    I'm skeptical myself.
    But at the committee hearing they seemed somewhat favorably inclined to remove the state's helmet law!
    Now that was just the committee...and I doubt if the King County socialists would ever go for it, but it shows some independent thought goes on In Olympia.

    An update: the Senator's office told me the bill passed the committee unanimously.

    At the last minute a group of WWII vehicle guys complained about the bill staying it's part about allowing HMMWVs to to be registered if safety mods were done, might force them to do the same with their trucks.
