House bill 1031, the Electronic Bill of Rights, will not be considered in 2007.

March 23, 2007—
Efforts by Washington legislators have failed to pass legislation this year that would have required parties to obtain consent from consumers before using RFID to "collect, maintain and disclose information" on them, because the bill was not placed on the House legislative floor calendar by March 14. The bill, HB 1031, was returned to the House Rules Committee on March 15, but it will not be heard by the full House during this year.
