The Washington STRONG Act is the only billbeing considered this session that is able to bring in billions of dollars for dedicated, immediate investment in our communities that will jumpstart our economy by directly addressing the climate crisis. With these investments, we can create more resilient communities and a more livable future for everyone.

Invest Today for Savings Tomorrow

In our legislative panel from earlier this month, Representative Wicks talked about the aging infrastructure of our schools, which leads to time-consuming repairs and *very* expensive utility bills. In at least one case, a high school was paying 4x as much in utilities costs compared to a newer one of the same size! WA STRONG could pay for the much-needed energy efficiency upgrades needed in our public institutions, for substantial savings in taxpayer money and greenhouse gas emissions. You can watch the entire panel discussion here.
