Thanks for all of the support for public records legislation

AWC wants to sincerely thank all of the city officials who participated in the public hearing on our priority public records bill, HB 2576. We had a number of city officials testify and even more sign-in to register their support. Many also stayed and packed the room for the hearing. Special thanks to Snoqualmie Mayor Matt Larson, Mount Vernon Mayor Boudreau, Kirkland Councilmember Penny Sweet, Issaquah Council President Stacy Goodman, and Puyallup Councilmember Julie Door for testifying on the bill.

It was amazing and very gratifying to see all of the support in the room for this bill. Thanks again to everyone who took the time to participate. We anticipate that the committee will vote on the bill on February 4 just prior to the cutoff deadline. The bill will likely then be sent to the House Appropriations Committee since it has a budget impact. It is critical that cities continue talking to your legislators and ask them to support this bill. Use this summary of talking points as a guide when talking with your legislator.
