State Sen. Lynda Wilson, R-Vancouver, and a bipartisan group of fellow senators have introduced two bills which deserve bipartisan support. The first bill, SB 5147, creates a sales tax exemption for feminine hygiene products. The second bill, SB 5148, permits hunters to wear fluorescent pink safety clothing in addition to traditional orange safety clothing. Both of these “pink” bills are worthwhile endeavors which deserve widespread support. These bills represent a wonderful opportunity for our elected leaders to come together in advancing bills which will truly help the people of our state.
