Testimony on SB 5920

Councilmember Dunn testifies before the WA State Senate on SB 5920

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I am excited to announce that yesterday the Washington State Senate passed Senate Bill 5920, legislation that would help reunite families impacted by substance use disorder. SB 5920 would create a legal pathway for parents who have demonstrated long-term sobriety to regain access to their children. Navigating the legal system can be daunting for anyone, but reforging connections with family can provide the hope needed to maintain recovery.

I am passionate about this issue and worked closely with the primary sponsor Senator Warnick in introducing and advocating for this legislation. With yesterday’s approval, we are one step closer to helping bring together thousands of families across Washington State.

As SB 5920 is sent to the Washington State House of Representatives—and hopefully, soon all the way to the Governor’s desk—I will continue to advocate for the bill however I can and keep you updated on its progress.

All my best,

Reagan Dunn signature
