(Interested in the 2019 Session Recap? Click Here)
The League believes that global climate change is one of the most serious threats facing our nation and planet today. Climate change is having a significant effect on Washington State's natural and economic landscape. Addressing climate change impacts will require a sustained commitment to integrating climate information into legislation and government programs and services.
The League supports measures that promote clean energy and clean transportation, energy efficient buildings, the expansion of renewable energy and other measures that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote climate resiliency.
The 2020 Legislative Session ended March 12 with several important climate victories, and with more climate work still needing to be done.
