(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that would improve coroner inquests in Washington is on its way to the full Senate.  Senate Bill 5769 would establish new rules that include allowing county commissioners to overrule medical examiners who refuse to conduct inquests, and requiring special consideration for deaths that involve law enforcement personnel and jail inmates.  The measure was inspired by a deadly shooting in Pasco, for which a coroner's inquest wasn't held until nearly two years later.
