WashingtonBigfoot.com supports the bill, that was created by Republican Senator Anne Rivers of the 18th District. The 18th District is in South Western Washington and is most of Clark County, minus Vancouver, WA.
The bill promotes the exploitation of bigfoot and labeling the creature a ‘cryptid’ would be prohibitive in proving the existence of bigfoot at a later date.
