The Washington State Legislature is currently in its long session, which typically ends in the third week of April. Bills that are being considered this year can be found here.
If you have a concern about a state issues or a bill being considered, you can find the list of contacts on this link.
If you do not know your district, here is a link to the maps that the Pierce County Auditor keeps. I have listed the districts for the South Pierce County Area that the Post typically covers, but you can find the others using the links.
Remember to reach out and be heard. Many of our south Pierce County legislators are relatives new, so you should lean more about them and follow their votes on this link. Always keep in mind, if a legislator votes in a way that is contrary to their usual position on an issue, reach out and ask about it. Do not just trust the news. There may have been an attachment or amendment to the legislation that was simply not worth voting for on that occasion. As them, do not count on nasty posts or mailer for the true story. Being in contact keeps you informed.
