Donna Zink's Law: Washington State looks to allow all Level 1 registry info to be accessed by the public

We can just call this bill what it really is, the Donna Zink law. This bill MUST be opposed.

    1. Donna Zink is a regular nominee of this site, and it is her lawsuit to collect this info that is leading to this act of legislation. See more on that crazy lady from this blog at:

      As far as stopping the bill, opposing the bill before it becomes law is the best way of doing it. I don't know if the Washington Chapter of NARSOL is still active, you can contact NARSOL to ask.
