Tools for tracking the legislative session  Puget Sound Partnership – Government Relations (wa.gov)

  • Weekly zoom calls with Don Gourlie for legislative updates on Fridays during session, 11:30-12:30. We had a kickoff call today and it was a great window into what’s coming. Given the fast pace, this might be a key way to stay up to date on ecosystem-related developments!
  • Interactive Online Budget Tracker: you can track proposed bills and funding by bill or by agency. There are two types of interactive charts that include the PSP ranked-agency requests and other initiatives in the governor’s proposed budget, with helpful links for each.
  • Interactive online Legislative Schedule: hearings will be updated weekly on the page above as well. Double-click on a session “appointment” in the calendar to see notes about the contents
