The End of a Session
After the close of the 2021 Washington State legislative session, lawmakers from across the state met at the East King Chambers Coalition (EKCC)’s 2021 Legislative Wrap Up to discuss the historic, and challenging, session.
EKCC is comprised of 11 Eastside chambers, encompassing more than 3,000 businesses across the community. Created more than 20 years ago, EKCC advocates for pro-growth policies in Olympia and brings lawmakers and business leaders together. From COVID-19 relief to infrastructure, lawmakers from across the Eastside debated the most pressing issues facing our community.
Kirkland Mayor Penny Sweet moderated the discussion between 15 lawmakers to discuss four broad topics: transportation, budget and taxes, housing and human services, and economic recovery.
