On Monday, March 18, 2024, Governor Inslee signed SB 5838 into law, which will establish an artificial intelligence (AI) taskforce.

The task force, supported by the Attorney General’s Office, brings together a diverse group of participants from a mix of industries and organizations to discuss concerns and opportunities with AI and generative AI and provide meaningful and productive recommendations to the legislature.

WR strongly advocated for retails inclusion on the task force. Through these efforts, WR secured a retail representative position on the executive committee, ensuring that the industry’s unique needs and potential for AI-driven growth are represented during policy discussions.

The retail industry has been one of the earliest adopters of AI technology and will bring a vital perspective to the task force.
