This Saturday, March 14, 2015 is a great time to meet with your Legislators across King County and urge them to act on Democratic priority legislation. Most legislative districts are holding town hall meetings. You can attend your own LD or any other you want. Take this opportunity to get updated on the current status of bills. Use it to ask questions about the issues and bills you are concerned about and support or oppose.
Use the King County Democrats 2015 Legislative Agenda to focus in on Democratic priorities. Use the latest bill tracking status (updated 3/9/2015) to check the status of specific bills the King County Democrats are following. Then let Legislators know your priorities and ask them to work to pass specific bills.
Other things you can ask include:
Are you going to fund K-12 education as mandated by the Washington State Supreme Court?
Are you going to eliminate any tax loopholes?
Are you going to pass a capital gains tax?
Are you going to address carbon pollution?
Are you going to make rail transport of oil safer?
Are you going to raise the minimum wage?
