Testimony: HB 2401 and HB 2402
Lawmakers hear public testimony on two bills that would help people get the rights they need to visit and tend to an ailing parent. The legislation, sponsored by Linda Kochmar, R-Federal Way, and Dan Griffey, R-Allyn, was spearheaded by the daughter of legendary radio personality Casey Kasem. Kerri Kasem struggled to locate her ailing father, who was moved out of his home state of California without the permission of his children. He died in a Gig Harbor hospital in June of 2014.
Kerri Kasem testified in favor of both bills.
