2019 Legislative Priorities: An Overview

Fish Barriers

Counties support legislation and funding that will help to remove fish barriers with a regional and watershed approach in mind. Just fixing state fish barriers will do nothing to solve the overall problem. The Legislature must provide funding to remove fish barriers at the state and local level as well as the necessary tools to meet the 2030 mandate.

Public Defense

Access to a defense attorney is a fundamental constitutional right where the responsibility has been passed down to counties. The Legislature funds less than 4% of the costs and counties spend $156 million annually. For equal access to justice, the Legislature must fund the full cost of trial court public defense services.

Unfunded Mandates

The Legislature has continued to shift costs through policy changes and legislation down to county government. To pay for these unfunded mandates, counties divert funds from road maintenances leaving critical public safety positions unfilled to meet the obligations from the state. Counties oppose any changes that will increase county costs without funding attached.

Public Health

Foundational Public Health Services (FPHS) is a set of public health programs and services that every citizen should have access to. While creating a responsive and sustainable public health system and ensure healthy and economically vital communities across Washington. Supporting FPHS funding for local health jurisdictions creates a system able to respond to threats.
