Clean energy, child care costs and housing crisis should be priorities for 2020 session

The House Democratic Caucus motto is “Putting People First.” That principle guides our work to pass laws and create programs to help Washington families thrive for generations to come. In recent years, we put people first by increasing K-12 funding by $13 billion, offering Washingtonians paid family and medical leave, investing $175 million in housing, making tuition far more affordable — or free — for working families, improving mental health care, and creating a long-term care benefits program.
