Sustain Environmental Protections in the Budget

We aim to ensure Washington's budget sustains environmental protections that safeguard the health of our families, communities and economy.



Our state is in the midst of an economic recession that threatens safeguards we all depend on, including core environmental protections. Washingtonians rely on protections that keep our families healthy: clean water to drink, unpolluted air to breathe, and the clean-up of toxic contaminations. Maintaining Washington’s clean environment also attracts business and qualified workers to our state, making us a driver in the new green economy.

While environmental protection programs are a small part of the state budget, they are critical in terms of public health, economic opportunity, and quality of life in Washington. Last year, the budget decimated many environmental programs, and we cannot afford to further impair these critical protections. The Environmental Priorities Coalition will work to ensure that our state budget sustains the core environmental protections we depend on to keep our communities healthy and safe.
