Bill to help homeless college students heads to Inslee's desk

BREMERTON A bill to direct more aid to homeless college students in Washington state has passed both houses.

Following Senate approval in early March, the House on Friday approved the proposal. The original version of the bill was sponsored by Sen. Emily Randall, D-Bremerton. Randall, elected in 2018, is vice chair of the Senate Higher Education & Workforce Development Committee.

Randall said Olympic College, a community college in her district, has been a leader in addressing the problem of student homelessness.

The bill would create a pilot program to show how the state's colleges could better assist students who are struggling with homelessness and students who were in the foster care system when they graduated high school.
