OPPORTUNITIES TO ADVOCATE

The Eastside Human Services Forum advocates with Eastside City Governments, King County, State, and Federal to ensure that revenue and policies support the needs of East King County residents. Throughout the year we’ll post Call to Action items if you’re interested in advocacy work.

Legislative Session Outcomes 2014

As usual there were some wins and losses during this year’s session, but overall we are pleased with several items that passed including the Document Recording Fee bill which extended the fees until 2019. Major disappointments: no transportation budget and no capital budget (which means no allocation for the Housing Trust Fund). For details on how our priority items fared click here.
