Christian Arciniega Catalyzes the Passage of Washington State Military Spouses Legislation


IAS Global Studies and Media and Communication Studies major Christian Aricniega was the catalyst behind the passage of HB 1052 relating to institutions of higher education affording priority registration to spouses and domestic partners receiving VA education benefits. Arciniega, who is also the Editor-in-Chief of the Husky Herald, inspired the bill by writing to Representative Dave Hayes about her experience as a student at UW Bothell.
