OLYMPIA, Wash. - The Washington state House and Senate are honoring six police officers killed late last year.
     
Both chambers unanimously passed resolutions Wednesday honoring Seattle Officer Timothy Brenton, Lakewood police Sgt. Mark Renninger, Officers Ronald Owens, Tina Griswold and Greg Richards, and Puyallup Deputy Kent Mundell. All were killed between October and December while on duty.
     
The House also plans to vote on several measures, including one that would increase death benefits for the survivors of police killed on the job.     

Another bill would require a judge to personally set bail for people arrested on felony charges. Currently, several counties have a system where a formula is used to set bail amounts if arrests are made on the weekends.

The House is also considering a bill that would toughen penalties for those charged with rendering criminal assistance.
