A proposed bill in the Washington State Legislature would require all state-purchased textbooks contain a disclaimer against evolution.

The proposed disclaimer says:

"A message from the Washington State Legislature: This textbook discusses evolution a controversial theory. [N]o one was present when life first appeared on earth.

Therefore, any statement about life's origin should be considered as theory, not fact. Study hard and keep and open mind. Someday you may contribute to the theories of how living things appeared on earth."

This disclaimer is similar to one added by the Alabama State Legislature to science textbooks in that state in 1995.
