Legislative Session 2021
This session will be remote only, which brings changes in process. Legislators are being encouraged to focus their attention on fewer bills, so they have to pick what is most important to them. Democrats have narrowed their focus to four key areas: racial equity, COVID-19 response, economic recovery and global climate change. Citizens may end up having an easier time to weigh in on bills, since they will not have to go to Olympia to testify or to talk with their representatives.
