Facing the Challenge Together: Protecting the Environment This Legislative Session

Monday, February 22nd, 7-8:30pm. REI- Seattle (click here for a map)

The 2010 Legislative Session is one of the most challenging in our state’s history, with lawmakers in Olympia dealing with a $2.6 billion budget deficit while trying to maintain basic services and critical environmental protections.  While this deficit presents an enormous challenge, and is soaking up the majority of the legislature’s time and energy this session; the Sierra Club-Cascade Chapter is still looking for good opportunities to move forward with protecting our environment, especially on transitioning off coal, developing clean energy, protecting critical environmental protections in the budget, and stabilizing transit funding.  Please join the Sierra Club-Cascade Chapter and local environmental leaders to learn more about important environmental legislation and how you can play a role in ensuring its passage.

Panelists include:

  • Kerri Cehovic, Outreach Director, Washington Environmental Council
  • Carrie Dolwick, Policy Associate, NW Energy Coalition
  • Doug Howell, Senior Regional Representative, Sierra Club Beyond Coal Campaign
  • Bill LaBorde, Policy Director, Transportation Choice Coalition
