Coming Wednesday: Law enforcement disclosure bill, Lewis-McChord merger

Here’s what we’re working on for tomorrow:

A bill to exempt law enforcement officers’ birthdates and photos from public disclosure is gathering speed in the Legislature. It is an incongruous response to the shootings of six police officers that will only serve to weaken the public trust by eroding accountability.

The merger of McChord Air Force Base and Fort Lewis is part of a healthy national move to consolidate military installations and push inter-service cooperation.
