Legislators are back in Olympia

"No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session."

Today's the day--legislators are back in Olympia.

All they have to do is agree on a budget. Nothing else is required. And the State Senate already passed a highly bipartisan, balanced budget (30-18).

Haven't we had enough of the gimmicks and the grandstanding?  Now you know what we have to do: get loud and get local.

You can let your legislators know exactly what you think, either online or by phone.

And remember, today is also the first day of "filing week"--the week when people will file for nearly 2,300 offices up for election in our state this year. Many of these are in your area. Find the list for your county here (extremely useful).

To see who's filing for these offices--and to file or help someone file--contact your county auditor.
