2022 Legislative Session
Mar 15, 2022

The 2022 legislative session adjourned sine die on March 10. Here are details on key bills:

  • The supplemental operating budget (ESSB 5693) fully-funds our 2022-2023 Collective Bargaining Agreement, which provides for a 3.25% cost of living increase and lump sum payments for AAGs serving 15 and 20 or more years.
  • We closely followed ESHB 2124, which extends collective bargaining rights to legislative staff, because our bill was enacted three years ago in 2019.  Caroline Cress, AWAAG’s legislative and lobbying chair, testified in support.  On the Senate floor, former AGO legislative director and now-State Senator Yasmin Trudeau, cited our experience as positive for employees and the AGO.

  • EHB 1752 establishes a Roth option for state employees’ deferred compensation plans. AWAAG member Phil Ferester testified in support before the Senate Ways & Means Committee. This option incentivizes tax-exempt saving and will enable more state employees to build a solid retirement future.

Here's our bill-tracking spreadsheet for details on other bills.
