How did I miss this? I searched and still didn't find anything. I know we had an old thread. Looks like we are GtG: http://lawfilesext.leg.wa.gov/biennium/2015-16/Pdf/Bills/Senate Passed Legislature/6165-S.PL.pdf
Depending on the date of the THR article they may have assumed that you could submit the paperwork to the ATF and by the time it was approved the new law would be in effect. If this was the case I thought I saw where someone guessed that early submissions would either be returned or placed on hold until the law went into effect.Excellent question, I'm glad I looked it up: 6/9/2016. THRs article says you can now, that has been misleading since they edited the article at the bottom saying the governor signed it and you can now manufacture.
