Rep. Travis Couture says Dems rejection of his amendment to protect kids from fentanyl will lead to more needless child deaths


Rep. Travis Couture, R-Allyn, who has been fighting to stop the rise in child deaths related to fentanyl for over a year, delivers an emotional floor speech after House Democrats narrowly defeat his amendment to strengthen HB 6109 – a weak bill from Democrats that prioritizes parents on fentanyl over the lives of Washington children. Despite his amendment failing 46-49, Couture urges House colleagues to pass HB 6109, saying “it’s better than the nothing we have now.”
