AMEND SB 6245

We the undersigned:

Amend SB 6245

For the following reasons:

The group of individuals who will be affected are:

  1. Injured workers 
  2. Medical providers that provide services to injured workers
  3. Department of Labor & Industries (LNI) Independent contractors

Interpreters who directly provide services to injured workers for the Department of Labor & Industries (LNI) were not included in the bill making process, therefore not sharing our input.
LNI interpreters are not part of the Union, and they DO NOT represent them.
It would eliminate jobs for future individuals that are DACA holders and any immigrant who are currently small business owners.
Some language access providers that will be bidding for this contract will be from out of state-thus taking away business from Washington State.
Reduce the opportunities for small minority business owners.
Getting rid of independent contractors - language access providers with the Department of Labor & Industries.
Eliminating the ability to contract and bill directly w/LNI.
LNI medical providers and injured workers will not have the right to choose their language access provider or interpreter.

We live in a country that is known as the “Land of Opportunities and Prosperity” We have been giving this opportunity by LNI , and by passing  SSB 6245 this will end.

Help us to keep the democratic process honest by allowing all interpreters including LNI providers to be a part of the bill making process, not just DSHS and HCA.
