Rep. Corry discusses his emergency powers reform bill with KIHR


Rep. Chris Corry, R-Yakima, discusses in depth on KIHR his House Bill 1772.

House Bill 1772 would rein in the governor's emergency powers. Corry's bill would also enable legislative leadership to extend the duration of a state of emergency and/or end a state of emergency, after the initial duration was over.

Rep. Corry has gotten some bipartisan support for his proposal. However, negotiations with House Democrats on the policy is still on-going.
