OLYMPIA — Sen. Rebecca Saldaña (D-Seattle) issues statement on the passage of House Bill 2076 , sponsored by Rep. Liz Berry (D-Seattle), by the Senate today:

“I’m proud to support my friend and colleague Representative Berry with this first-in-the-nation legislation advancing the rights of passenger drivers in Washington,” said Sen. Saldaña. “Throughout my time in the legislature, I have prioritized expanding workplace protections for those in our modern economy. The drivers in my community, the vast majority of whom are immigrants, refugees, and people of color, have demanded the protections we are providing in this bill.

“We are building on Seattle’s nation-leading policies to provide almost unheard-of protections to these drivers and put money back in their pockets.”
