2015 Interpreter Bills
Updated On: Feb 28, 2015

SB 5787 Model Policy and Procedures for Language Access by LEP Parents of Students

Senate Bill 5787, sponsored by Sen. Pramila Jayapal of the 37th District, requires public school districts to develop Language Assistance Plans to improve communications with Limited English Proficient parents. This is in direct response to the Providing Language Access Services for Limited English Proficient Parents in Washington Schools report issued on January 2015 by the Office of the Education Ombudsman.

STATUS: Died in the House Appropiations Committe 

HB 1780 Regulating Interpreter Services

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.
