Washington State Legislature. The State Legislature’s 2023 session runs from January 9th to April 23rd. In odd years, our legislators write the two-year state budget. Thus, there will be both policy and funding bills with implications for Audubon’s priorities. At this writing in mid-November, we do not yet know Audubon Washington’s specific legislative priorities, but they should be available soon at Advocacy | Audubon Washington. The state staff is again organizing a virtual Advocacy Day, which will happen via Zoom on December 5th and 6th. Act quickly and you may still be able to get involved in directly urging your state legislators to support conservation priorities. Sign up here, filling in your information! Our elected officials need to hear from us about the importance of protecting and restoring shorelines, taking a well-considered, balanced approach to siting wind and solar farms, and more. Your voice can make a difference.
