2006 House Bill 2711: Ensuring that grandparents have visitation rights
  1. Introduced by Rep. Ruth Kagi, (Lake Forest Park) (D) on January 12, 2006, to ensure grandparents have visitation rights to their grandchildren and to also establish who a grandparent is. Grandparents are listed as a person who is related by blood, marriage, or adoption. See companion SB 6683.
    • Referred to the House Juvenile Justice & Family Law Committee on January 12, 2006.
    • Substitute offered to the House Juvenile Justice & Family Law Committee on January 31, 2006, to reorganize Section 3 of the bill to clarify what a petitioner needs to prove in order to have legal standing. The substitute also corrects a drafting error by replacing the term "parent" with "grandparent" in Section 3 of the bill.
