Bainbridge legislator passes two bills in Olympia

Steven Gardner reports in the Kitsap Caucus blog that Bainbridge city councilwoman-turned-state representative Christine Rolfes recently passed bills in the Legislature:

A bill to let crime victims weigh in when the criminal is eligible for work release passed both houses of the Legislature. So did a bill that would make National Guard members deployed overseas eligible for county benefits they currently don’t get. Both bills were sponsored in the House by state Rep. Christine Rolfes, D-Bainbridge Island.

“Art” opens for a two-week run on April 10. Click here to read Moore’s story.
