WASHTUCNA, Wash. -

Third through sixth grade students in the Washtucna School District are working hard to push a bill through the Washington legislature that would make Palouse Falls the state waterfall. Since late October the students in Janet Camp and Amy Whipple’s class have been working to make their bill become law. Recently, their bill passed the Washington House of Representatives.

The students learned about the history of Palouse Falls and five of them actually made the trip to the state capitol to testify in front of a house committee.

If the bill is to become law they will still need a little help. The bill needs to get through a Senate committee and passed on the Senate floor. The last step is get the Governor's signature.
