The Legislative Luncheon Review provided some important insight into what took place during this 2016 Supplemental Budget Session. Our Clark County Legislators spoke on a panel discussing their thoughts on highlights from this session along with issues they would be working on in 2017.
Some of the priority issues discussed in the 2016 Short Session and today included:
- The Budget
- Education – fully funding WA K-12 Education
- Charter Schools
- Putting Tech & Career Programs back in our public schools
- Growth Management Act and related issues
- Affordable Housing
It was nice to see all of our local Legislators, and there was a packed house in attendance. Thanks for all of your hard work for the citizens of Clark County and Washington state! I look forward to the opportunity to join you next year.
