More details about the new bill. Republican Senator Sharon Brown, who originally proposed the bill, claims that the state is fully ready to implement the technology. A similar law was proposed back in 2019, but it was vetoed by Washington’s governor in 2020. The lawmakers took two years to finalize it.
