From the Governor's office on March 17, 2020:
"Due to recent changes in public gatherings concerning COVID 19, we will be closing bill signings to legislators and the public. We will arrange for a bill signing photo at a later date upon request.
We did not make this decision lightly. We understand that this may be disappointing to many, but we must all do our part to help protect the health of each other.
Public access to the bill process is a priority for Governor Jay Inslee. This recommendation comes from numerous medical and health officials, and our office will do all we can to support this recommendation.
The bills signings will be covered by TVW. We appreciate all they are doing to help keep the public informed."
