OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - State officials say a union representing thousands of home health care workers will pay more than $39,000 after an attorney general’s office lawsuit regarding campaign finance reporting deficiencies.

The State Attorney General’s Office said in a news release Friday that Service Employees International Healthcare 775NW (SEIU 775) will pay the fine over improper reporting of in-kind and cash contributions.

More than $6,500 of the nearly $46,000 judgment against them will be suspended as long as the union files reports in accordance with state campaign finance law going forward.

The union’s political action committee, SEIU 775 Quality Care Committee (SEIU 775 PAC), will also pay $6,000, with $1,500 of that suspended as long as it updates its reports and complies with reporting requirements.
