Here is a summary of other key bills being reviewed and testified to by Washington Retail:
HB 1159, changing the definition of a theft from a retailer. This would allow law enforcement to question shoppers suspected of concealing merchandise with the intent to steal it. This is a law enforcement tool used in other states but needs to be added to Washington State law.
HB 1727. This would ban issuers from charging a fee for inactivity or dormancy with gift certificates or gift cards. It also would ban expiration dates for such certificates or cards.
WR will update these and other bills in subsequent weekly newsletters and in a more detailed report for members following adjournment. You can read more about all bills by clicking on the links provided.
