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.
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
The president’s decision endangers tens of thousands of Washingtonians and millions of Americans. This is a radical change to #TitleX, a program with four decades of success providing affordable birth control and reproductive healthcare to patients. https://t.co/EcauwS9UCL
Super-polluting hydrofluorocarbons are thousands of times worse for our climate than carbon, and climate-safe alternatives exist. Thanks to @joefitzgibbon and so many others for moving our super-pollutants bill through committees — now ready for the House to vote on. #waleg
My office recently learned the shocking revelation from that reunification could mean placing a separated child with ANY long-term sponsor — regardless of whether it’s their parents, other family in the US, family back in their home country or in long-term foster care.
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. https://t.co/OaFfqOCdz2
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 https://t.co/xYASWWmLS9
Automatic Voter Registration: ✅ Same-day Voter Registration: ✅ Pre-registration for 16 and 17 year olds: ✅ Increased campaign finance transparency: ✅ Washington Voting Rights Act: ✅ Democracy lives on in Washington state.
If true, this interpretation blatantly ignores the terms of the court order. The federal government has also recently admitted that reunification is being used as a bargaining chip to induce parents to agree to voluntary deportation.
