@EcologyWA . has submitted concerns about the pipeline’s impact to our shared international waters. I continue to stand with them and urge the Canadian government to reconsider.
We have a good working relationship with Canada and the B.C. province, where we recently reiterated our support for shifting our region to a #cleanenergy economy. Now is the time to protect our #orcas and combat #climatechange , not invest in long-term fossil fuel infrastructure.
Today the Canadian National Energy Board recommended that the #TransMountain pipeline expansion should go forward, even after they found it would be harmful to Southern Resident #orcas, increase greenhouse gas emissions and worsen global #climatechange.

Trump is forcing doctors, nurses and community health centers to deny treatment referrals and fully legal medical services to their patients, whom they took an oath to serve. This is unacceptable and wrong. #NoGagRule #TitleX #StandWithPP
We stand united with @AGOWA Ferguson and our state and legislative leaders against this blatant assault on women’s health. Washington has been, and will continue to be, a state that stands with women and their right to safe and legal abortion and reproductive care. #TitleX
We are reviewing the final rule and evaluating our options. It is clear the Trump administration has given our state no choice but to explore all possible avenues, including legal options, to ensure all women have access to family planning and healthcare services. #TitleX
By denying access to Planned Parenthood and other family planning clinics, more than 80,000 people in Washington could lose access to their current doctor. The president is directly interfering in the doctor-patient relationship. #StandWithPP #TitleX #NoGagRule

We cannot trust that these families will actually be reunified. Today I led a group of six governors in demanding & take responsibility for the dire effects of the "zero-tolerance policy " and trauma inflicted on nearly 3,000 children.

I believe this is an excellent response to the administration’s request, though I’d strongly suggest they jump in Lake Washington.
I have declared a state of emergency in preparation for this #wasnow winter storm. Everyone in WA needs to focus on preparing for the snow and staying safe. I encourage everyone to stay off the roads if possible and plan ahead if you must travel. #wawx
