On February 2nd, 2018, WA State was poised to move a bill that would make Bigfoot the State’s Official Cryptid toward a floor vote. The bill was scheduled to be presented to the State Government, Tribal Relations & Elections Committee. After approximately 45 minutes, Committee Chair Sam Hunt informed the gallery that there would be no action on the bill today. He had been informed by the bills sponsor, Ann Rivers, that the young man who is ‘proposing ‘ the bill was not able to attend the public hearing.
The bill’s status has not been updated.
