Priorities for a Healthy Washington

I'm pleased to announce the launch of Priorities for a Healthy Washington. It's the common legislative agenda of Washington State's leading environmental organizations.  This year's Priorities are:

  • Cleaner Cars, Cleaner Air – adopting California’s best-in-the-nation auto emissions standards.
  • Green Buildings – committing the state to making sure all of its new state buildings meet the LEED Silver standard for high performance green buildings.
  • Sound Solutions – saving Hood Canal and Puget Sound from water pollution
  • Banning Toxic Flame Retardants – getting some of the most dangerous toxic chemicals out of our bodies, our food supply and our wildlife.

Throughout the legislative session, Priorities for a Healthy Washington will be sending a targeted, timely series of updates and alerts at critical moments in the legislative process for each of these bills.  Why not take a moment to sign up?

It'd be nice to see us adopt some of the other California/ SF ideas, like appliance energy standards, renewables portfolio with new buildings, and universal wifi access in urban areas.

It'd also be nice to have smart growth policies which actually really meant something.

Heck, it'd be nice to see us actually lead in some environmental arenas.
