Bills building on the Federation-initiated and negotiated reforms that saved the state millions of dollars for medical interpreter services are now before legislative committees. The bills would centralize and consolidate the procurement of spoken language interpreter services and expand the use of language access providers. The aim is to reduce administrative costs while protecting consumers.
The bills are Senate Bill 5664, sponsored by Sen. Pramila Jayapal of the 37th District, and House Bill 1780, sponsored by Rep. Steve Bergquist of the 11th District.
Most importantly, these bills would reform the procurement of interpreter services at Washington State's Labor & Industries (WA L&I). The US Department of Justice together with the US Department of Labor have found WA's L&I in non-compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
