East King County Chambers of Commerce Legislative Coalition Posts Legislative Agenda for 2019
"East King Legislators - Thank you for all your hard work in 2018 funding basic education, supporting workforce training and resisting the temptation to impose across the board taxation on employers and employees.
As business owners we understand the legislative process can take time to bear fruit, especially in times of divided government. We are hopeful that a spirit of negotiation and compromise will return in 2019. We believe the public interest is best served by transparent, accountable, and fiscally prudent governance.

Workforce housing is almost non-existent in East and South King County and our transportation system offers little relief from increasingly lengthy commutes."
