Who Makes Public Policy? WE Make Public Policy!
Who we elect and how we interact with elected and appointed policy-makers makes a difference. What’s the progress on AAUW-WA supported bills? Our lobbyist Nancy Sapiro provides weekly legislative updates.
This year, our legislators had to make tough choices and limit the number of bills they sponsored. What choices did they make? What were their top priorities? Who influenced their choices? Here is a list, with active links, of the bills that our local legislators sponsored.
