The purpose of the Social Justice & Equity Commission is to "eliminate racism and fulfill human rights for a just and equitable Olympia for all people."
The Commission will serve as a welcoming place to file complaints on racial, social justice, human rights violations, and other forms of discrimination, and where people will be provided transparent investigation and resolution of these complaints. The commission will also connect community members to resources and assistance in navigating city or state systems, participate in community-wide education and outreach on equity and racial justice, and ultimately enable those from historically marginalized communities to have a voice in City government.
The future will be electric!
Washington State wants to hear from you about mapping and forecasting our shared transportation future.
The 2021 State Energy Strategy estimates that one million internal combustion vehicles need to be zero-emission vehicles by 2030 to meet the state’s target for reducing greenhouse gases. By 2035 all new car sales will need to be electric.
How will charging/fueling infrastructure develop and change during that time?
How can the state optimize the use of public dollars?
What is the Working Families Tax Credit?
The Working Families Tax Credit program was recently funded by the Washington State Legislature through the passage of Engrossed Substitute House Bill 1297. Starting in 2023, the credit will provide approximately 400,000 Washingtonians with a one-time payment if the applicant applies for the credit and meets the eligibility requirements for the year that the applicant is applying for. Eligibility for the credit mirrors the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) but differs in a few unique ways.
