The 2020 Legislative Session is Underway

The 2020 legislative session is underway in Olympia. Last session, alumni and friends like YOU encouraged the State Legislature to pass the most significant investment in higher education in more than a decade (read about the Workforce Education Investment Act here or watch the video below for more context). Help us protect that investment in 2020.

Write to your lawmakers today to thank them for the Workforce Education Investment Act, and to ask them to preserve this critical funding. This is a supplemental session, which means the Legislature will be making any needed adjustments to the budget it passed last year over the next 60 days. In the event of a revenue shortfall, we will ask our legislators to keep their commitments to higher education.

Click here to send a “welcome to session” message to your lawmakers. Let them know that higher education advocates appreciate them and are paying attention to their hard work.

Thank you for joining us in advocating for the University of Washington and higher education in our state!
