Now that the session has ended, the Governor has begun the bill signing process; two bills of importance to the UW were signed into law today. HB 2328 makes significant improvements in the “belt-tightening” bill passed early in session. SB 5925 allows universities to require students in study-abroad programs to purchase health insurance as a condition of participating. We will be noting key bills here as they are signed by the Governor; under state law she has until May 19 to take action on legislation.
