Last week we were thrilled to share that the Washington State House of Representatives is leading on climate by passing HB 2427, a new bill that would add a climate goal to the GMA and require our state’s largest counties and the cities in those counites to plan for climate change. Now it’s time for the Senate to take up the bill. Ask your senator to vote YES on HB 2427 to act on climate.
The science is clear: we need to take urgent action on climate change to protect our communities and our environment. That’s why Futurewise is so excited to see climate change added as a goal under the Growth Management Act. HB 2427 will ensure that local governments work to reduce greenhouse gas pollution and plan for sea level rise and decreased water availability. We can’t wait for action on climate which is why it’s critical that the State Senate pass HB 2427.
