Building business ecosystems bill likely dead

SB 6499, Sen. Sharon Brown’s (R-Kennewick) Building business ecosystems bill, appears to be dead. With this bill, Senator Brown had set out to establish a permanent, statewide financing program modeled after the successful Local Revitalization Financing program. You can learn more about the bill here.

AWC was extremely supportive of the legislation and is disappointed the bill did not receive a vote out of committee.

As we move into the 2018 interim, AWC looks forward to working with Senator Brown and members of the Senate and House to craft economic development solutions for all of Washington’s cities and towns.
