Rep. Javier Valdez, D-46, saw his bill, HB 2700, signed into law by Gov. Inslee.

This measure protects child forensic interviews that describe or depict allegations of child abuse, child neglect, or exposure to violence from disclosure under the Public Records Act.

Child trauma is hard enough to cope with without having to relive it. HB 2700 not only protects certain records from being public, but also ensures advanced of disclosure notice is given to child witnesses that have since become emancipated minors or attained the age of majority.
