The Washington STRONG Act has arrived!

Our state budget is in the red, with insufficient resources to address the current economic crisis or the ongoing climate crisis. But with the Washington STRONG Act (SB 5373), we have the opportunity to create more resilient communities, to shrink our climate impact, to address environmental health disparities, to have cleaner air and water, to spur substantial job creation, to restore our ecosystems, and to transition to a green economy. This resilient recovery program will generate at least $16 billion over 10 years to accelerate our transition to a clean economy and create more than 100,000 local, family-wage jobs.

The bill was just introduced, but a hearing in the Senate Environment and Energy Committee will be scheduled very soon. Stay tuned!
