January 2020 Advocacy Update

The second year of Washington’s 66th Legislature convened for a 60-day session on Monday, January 13, 2020. The House kicked off the 2020 session by swearing in Rep. Laurie Jinkins as the first woman Speaker of the House in Washington state history! Read a recap of the first week on the WSPTA blog.

Focus Day meetings were a success!
