Washington’s Charitable Solicitations Act is getting some helpful updates. Secretary Reed stood by Governor Gregoire as she recently signed into law SHB 1485, a bill requested by our office that makes changes to the state’s Charitable Solicitations Act. The House and Senate unanimously passed it. Standing on the left side of the photo are Charities Program Manager Rebecca Sherrell (far left) and Corporations and Charities Division Director Pam Floyd.
The governor also signed into law SHB 1040, another bill that our office requested. That proposal, also approved unanimously by the Legislature, allows our office to send renewal notices to businesses and other entities by e-mail rather than postal mail, if they choose the e-mail option.
