Stormwater funding prioritization

Sen. Rivers (R-La Center) has introduced a companion (SB 5441) to Rep. Pike's bill (HB 1235) to prioritize state investments in stormwater toward helping local governments meet our permit obligations, rather than the current focus on items that are largely above and beyond permit obligations. We testified in favor of Rep. Pike’s version of this bill and will also testify in favor of Sen. Rivers’ bill. As you know, we are also working with the environmental community and the Department of Ecology for a more balanced approach on stormwater funding and for the creation of a long-term and stable stormwater funding program. If you have input on these issues, please provide it to Carl Schroeder.
