Approval of resolutions
Resolution 116. Resolutions Committee recommends passage. We need democratic representation, and there are issues of race as well. Move to have the Progressive Caucus endorse R 116. APIC acknowledges that some over-representation of rural areas is called for, but thinks the present set-up goes too far in that direction.
Present situation results from what was essentially a coup in 1980 by the Scoop Jackson wing of the party. Analogy to the Senate and the House, one represented by population and the other not. Unanimous endorsement.
R233—A Remedy for workplace bullying. Does not refer to a specific legislative remedy. Benton county legislators have introduced bills in the past. Refer back for recommendation? Motion to endorse. Refer back to specific legislation.
Resolution 214 to endorse universal health care HR676.
Resolution to Impeach Bush and Cheney Res 276.
Request for CD coordinators
