House unanimously approves Mosbrucker's missing and murdered indigenous persons bill


Legislation by Rep. Gina Mosbrucker to further investigations of missing and murdered indigenous women and other indigenous persons gained unanimous approval by the Washington State House of Representatives Tuesday.

House Bill 1713 continues upon legislation passed last year that brought the State Patrol together with federally recognized tribes, tribal law enforcement, urban Indian organizations and the Governor’s Office of Indian Affairs to study and identify the issue of missing Native American women in Washington state and report recommendations to the Legislature.
