Vehicle fleet conversion bill heard in the House

On February 12, Battleground City Manager John Williams joined AWC and city lobbyist Mark Brown to testify in favor of our fleet conversion legislation (HB 1602) in front of the House Environment Committee. Since the Senate bill (SB 5099) has moved from the Rules committee, we have been working with the Inslee administration and the Department of Commerce to attempt to find a compromise that would preserve the protections the bills provide to local governments while also giving the administration and environmental community more comfort that the state’s drive towards alternative fuels wouldn’t be stalled. We are optimistic that we will be able to meet that shared objective.
