Environmental Priorities Coalition
An introduction to the Environmental Priorities Coalition
The Environmental Priorities Coalition is a state-wide effort of leading groups that have worked to make Washington a better place to live since 2002.
The Environmental Priorities Coalition believes that we can have a strong economy and a healthy environment that allows our families to prosper in a safe and clean community. Especially in the face of proposals that would turn our Evergreen State into a fossil fuel highway, our leaders in Olympia need to stand up and make smart decisions to protect our environment and communities. The Environmental Priorities Coalition combines the voices of Washington’s strongest environmental organizations and works with the legislature to move us forward.
The Environmental Priorities Coalition is a state-wide effort of leading groups that have worked to make Washington a better place to live since 2002. As with each legislative session, the Coalition selected priority issues for 2014 that are important to protecting our state for future generations: closing a tax loophole that benefits Big Oil and putting safety standards in place to reduce the risks associated with moving oil through our state and along our coasts. Visit our Past Legislation page to explore previous legislative efforts including past Environmental Priorities.
