House Bill 1614 details
Senator Craig Pridemore (Democrat, legislative district 49, Vancouver)
Representative Timm Ormsby (Democrat, legislative district 3, Spokane)
The Working for Clean Water bill, HB1614, is about creating jobs, rebuilding our local economy, and cleaning up polluted waterways like Puget Sound. Each year millions of gallons of petroleum pollute our water through stormwater runoff, a serious threat to our health and environment. This bill is a fee on polluters that will fund shovel-ready, local projects all over the state to stop this contamination. Put Washington back to work by building stormwater infrastructure.
