FOR THE RECORD

How your legislators voted on key state employee issues in 2011 and 2012

An informational publication from the Washington Federation of State Employees/AFSCME Council 28 AFL-CIO

This voting record covers key House and Senate votes in 2011 and 2012. Its a useful report card indicating exactly how legislators have performed on state employee issues. Its also a tool you can use to evaluate legislators running for re-election. This voting record should help you determine if their votes in the past two years justify your support and endorsement in 2012. But note: This is a quantitative tool. You should also evaluate legislators based on qualitative factors that dont come from votes on bills.

Reducing early retirement options (so-called pension reform) (Second Engrossed Senate Bill 6378) (WFSE/AFSCME opposed) Passed the House 56-42 on 4/10/12 Sponsored by Sen. Joe Zarelli, R-18 District. The bill cuts Early Retirement Factors (ERFs) for new state employees hired after May 1, 2013. Pensions would be cut 5 percent a year for every year an employee with 30 years of service retires between age 55 and 65. Right now, someone in PERS 2 at age 55 with 30 years of service gets a 20 percent reduction. Under this bill, it rises to a 50 percent reduction. Its a problem in search of a solution that doesnt save money, will add costs and harm the recruitment of quality public servants.

3. Capping the number of exempt employees in the Consolidated Technology Services (CTS) agency at 25% (House Bill 2396) (WFSE/AFSCME supported) Passed the House 60-35 (with 3 excused) on 2/9/12; died in the Senate Rules Committee. Sponsored by Rep. Zack Hudgins, D-11 District. Attempted to undo some of the damage caused by the 2011 passage of ESSB 5931 that created CTS (along with the Department of Enterprise Services). As a result, some 66 percent of CTS employees lost their bargaining rights when the agency and the Department of Personnel deemed them exempt employees. HB 2396 would have provided that no more than 25 percent of the employees within CTS may be exempt from the state civil service law. Bargaining rights would have been restored to many employees.

Sponsored by Rep. Sharon Wylie, D-49th District. 2SHB 2452 brings a more objective, competitive and accountable process, creates consistency and eliminates nepotistic and pre-arranged awards of bids. Members have reported these widespread abuses for years. The new law promotes open competition and transparency for all contracts for goods and services entered into by state agencies. Centralizes within one agency the authority and responsibility for the development and oversight of policies related to state procurement and contracting.

5. Transportation revenue (Engrossed House Bill 2660) (WFSE/AFSCME supported) Passed the House 56-42 on 3/8/12; signed into law 3/23/12. Sponsored by Rep. Judy Clibborn, D-41st District. The bill increased or established a variety of fees administered by the Department of Licensing to raise $57 million for the remainder of the 2011-13 biennium, and $183.5 million in the 2013-15 biennium, to fund transportation programs. This package is especially beneficial for DOT members because it provides $7 million in the current biennium ($20 million in 2013-15) to reduce the highway maintenance backlog and meet urgent preservation needs. It also provides $3.5 million for urgent preservation and storm water needs. The additional revenue is expected to allow WSDOT to continue to maintain the system at the current level. Overall, the bill imposes a fee of $1.50 per barrel on each barrel of petroleum product refined in the state to be used for transportation purposes in the state. Creates the state transportation operations andmaintenance account.

6. Repealing PERS 1 cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) (Substitute House Bill 2021) (WFSE/AFSCME opposed) Passed the House 52-45 (with 1 excused) on 4/21/11; signed into law 5/16/11. Sponsored by Rep. Eric Pettigrew, D-37th District. Under SHB 2021, Public Employees and Teachers Retirement Systems Plan 1 (PERS Plan 1 and TRS Plan 1) members benefits are no longer increased through the Uniform COLA above the amount in effect on July 1, 2010, unless a retiree qualifies for the basic minimum benefit. Members of PERS Plan 1 and TRS Plan 1 that qualify for the minimum benefit formulas in the plans will continue to receive the Uniform COLA.

Close tax loophole for banks to reduce K-3 class sizes (test vote on loophole closures) (Substitute House Bill 2078) (WFSE/AFSCME supported) Got a 52-42 majority vote in the House on 5/24/11, but died for lack of required two-thirds supermajority. Sponsored by Rep. Laurie Jinkins, D-27th District. This was an important test vote in the ongoing debate about whether closing tax loopholes requires a two-thirds majority vote. On the surface, it would have closed a bank tax loophole to cut class size. But it was a symbolic battle in the overall battle now in the courts. A Yes vote was a Right (+) vote; a No vote was a Wrong vote (-).

8. Reducing L&I Benefits (Engrossed House Bill 2123) (WFSE/AFSCME opposed) Passed the House 69-26 (with 3 excused) on 5/23/11; signed into law 6/15/11. Sponsored by Rep. Tami Green, D-28th District. This compromise workers compensation bill supported by the governor and legislative leaders of both parties instituted structured settlement agreements only for older workers, with minimum and maximum payments. Additional protections are provided to workers in the settlement process. It creates a stayat-work program that gives employers a partial reimbursement for employing the injured worker at light duty or transitional work, pending approval of a health care provider. It also eliminates the FY 2012 COLA, and delays the next COLA. A Yes vote was a Wrong (-) vote; a No vote was a Right (+) vote.

This compromise workers compensation bill supported by the governor and legislative leaders of both parties instituted structured settlement agreements only for older workers, with minimum and maximum payments. Additional protections are provided to workers in the settlement process. It creates a stayat-work program that gives employers a partial reimbursement for employing the injured worker at light duty or transitional work, pending approval of a health care provider. It also eliminates the FY 2012 COLA, and delays the next COLA. A Yes vote was a Wrong (-) vote; a No vote was a Right (+) vote.

6.

Sponsored by Sen. Adam Kline, D-37th District. This RHC consolidation/closure bill closed Frances Haddon Morgan Center, froze admissions to Yakima Valley School and converts it to a SOLA when its population reaches 16 (two cottages will be converted to SOLAs). It retains the permanent status of the other RHCs: Lakeland Village, Fircrest School and Rainier School.

9. Workers Compensation/Injured Workers Buy-Outs (Engrossed Senate Bill 5566) (WFSE/AFSCME opposed) Passed the Senate 34-15 on 3/5/11; this version did not become law. Sponsored by Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles, D-36th District. This version that passed the Senate was not supported by the sponsor. Thats because it included a striking amendment authored by Sen. Janea Holmquist Newbry of the 12th District, after rejection of a good alternative amendment from Sen. Sharon Nelson of the 34th District, that would have created only a study of the workers comp system. ESB 5566 would have allowed parties to an allowed claim for workers compensation benefits to enter into a voluntary settlement agreement, subject to approval by the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals. It would have allowed employers to provide light-duty or transitional work to an injured worker without reimbursement for 50 percent of the injured workers wages. While ESB 5566 did not pass, another bill opposed by WFSE/ AFSCME that reduced benefits for injured workers (EHB 2123, see vote #5) did pass into law. A Yes vote was a Wrong (-) vote; a No vote was a Right (+) vote. ROLL CALL: ESB 5566 Senate vote on 3rd Reading & Final Passage (WFSE/AFSCME opposed)
