2021 Legislative Session

The legislative started in January, and is a this year’s opportunity for climate legislation in the state. Many different bills are in play, and there is a more complete write-up here on the Seattle Climate Hub. You can also learn more at Climate at the Legislature. We also encourage you to sign up for 350 Washington Civic Action Team updates.
