Environmental Lobbying Day A Big Success!

Over 400 people descended on Olympia to attend the Environmental Lobby Day 2010, to advocate for clean water, safe baby bottles, and sustaining the budget for environmental protections.  We had 14 people from the Peninsula, including Gray’s Harbor and Port Townsend.

Thanks to Representatives Kessler, Van De Wege and Senator Hargrove for taking the time to meet with us.

In 2008, Environmental Priorities Coalition successfully passed all four environmental priorities.

The Coalition’s 2010 legislative package includes:

  • Working for Clean Water bill is about creating jobs, rebuilding our local economies, and cleaning up polluted waterways like Puget Sound and the Spokane River.
  • Safe Baby Bottle Act to protect children’s health and the environment by phasing out the harmful chemical bisphenol A (BPA) from baby bottles, food and beverage cans, and other consumer products.
  • Sustain Environmental Protections in the Budget to ensure adequate funding for the core environmental protections that make Washington State a healthy place to live.
