In January CityClub hosted our annual Legislative Preview where we spoke with the top leadership in the State House and Senate about their priorities for the upcoming session. During the forum all four panelists said the legislature would make a $1 billion down payment on the McCleary decision to fund basic education. With finite resources and pledges not to raise taxes, what will this mean for higher education and health and human services funding? Join us to hear from representatives of organizations that would be immediately impacted by budget decisions in Olympia, including what’s happening on the ground and how you can take action to impact final budget outcomes. Also hear from representatives from state-wide think tanks from a 30,000 foot perspective on what balance is the right one between the top two contenders for state budget dollars. Bring your own questions and get the information you need to contact your representatives in Olympia with confidence!
