By: Anne Frances Owen ~
On Jan. 9, the WA state legislature will convene its first ever hybrid session, which will last 90 days. This year, some meetings will be held in only Olympia; others, such as hearings in which everyday citizens can share their perspectives, will allow remote participation.
Rep. Bill Ramos, Rep. Lisa Callan, and Sen. Mark Mullet spoke to our club about a wide variety of issues, including:
- salmon protection
- criminal justice and public safety
- drug possession
- behavioral health
- medical staffing
- housing policies
