A bill to keep many legislative records out of the public’s eye passed both the Washington state House and Senate on Friday with votes of 83-14 and 41-7, respectively.

Senate Bill 6617 makes some legislative records public, such as lawmakers’ calendars and their email exchanges with registered lobbyists that are created after July 1. But it keeps private those records already in existence — many of which Thurston County Superior Court Judge Chris Lanese recently ruled are public records.
