House to Likely to Vote Next Week on SAFE Banking Act
April 16, 2021
It is likely that the House of Representative will bring the SAFE Banking Act (H.R. 1996) to floor for a vote next Wednesday, April 21. As reminder all of the Northwest delegation supported the bill with the exception of just 1 previous member and 1 member who has been elected since the vote. Our other newest member of the delegation Congresswoman Strickland (D – WA 10) is among the 10 Northwest co-sponsors of the Bill. As a reminder Senator Merkley (D – OR) is the primes sponsor of the Senate version of the bill and Senators Murray (D – WA) and Wyden (D – OR) are co-sponsors.
