Gina Mosbrucker of Goldendale has a way of surviving the partisan process and becoming law.  And her streak of success has continued with five bills having passed the Washington State House of Representatives and the state Senate and are on their way to the governor.

The 2022 legislative session is scheduled to adjourn Thursday, March 10.
