Gov. Inslee joins Washtucna students to sign Palouse Falls bill

Gov. Inslee joins Washtucna students to sign Palouse Falls bill

An exciting day for the students of Washtucna School as Governor Jay Inslee joined them at the Palouse Falls to sign the bill the students penned making the landmark the official state waterfall.


The students started working on the bill as part of a class lesson on how government works in the fall. At the end of January, five of the students, in grades three through six, made their way to the state Capitol to make their case before the House Government Operations and Election Committee.

Inslee poised to sign legislation restricting teens from tanning salons

Inslee poised to sign legislation restricting teens from tanning salons

Governor Jay Inslee is expected to sign a bill that will make Washington State the sixth in the country that would prevent minors from using tanning beds, which has owners of local tanning salons, who rely on teen business, concerned.

Cindy Herring owns Jamaica Me Tan in Spokane Valley. Many of her clients are high school students and this legislation would stop most of them from tanning altogether.

"It's going to be difficult," she said.

Herring said she understands the health concerns but says educating young people is better than an all-out ban and that a better solution would be to regulate tanning for minors.

"Many other states have addressed, okay we need to have the signatures of children who are under 18 tanning and I agree with that, that's not going to hurt our business. It's going to let mom know that we're safe, it's going to let mom know the rules, the teenager know the rules, and that's the best thing you can do. Through education it's about safe tanning not risky tanning," she explained.
