      • Call or Write Gov’s Jay Inslee, Kate Brown and Jerry Brown for their joint statement on the Clean Power Plan:
        • Last week, governors along the West Coast issued a joint statement supporting the Clean Power Plan – a policy put in place by President Obama to initiate a national transition away from coal powered-electricity – in anticipation of action by President Trump that would either withdraw or rewrite the plan.
        • The statement takes a stand against the president possibly weakening standards that protect air quality and reduce carbon emissions.
        • “Any attacks on the Clean Power Plan would move our nation in the wrong direction and put American prosperity at risk. Climate change is one of our greatest threats, from more wildfires threatening our homes and communities to ocean acidification rocking our shellfish industry to drought hurting our farmers,” part of the statement reads. “Too much is at stake – from our health and safety to our jobs and livelihoods – for us to move backwards.”
          • Jay Inslee: Office of the Governor, PO Box 40002, Olympia, WA 98504-0002 / Phone: 360-902-4111

      • Mayor Ed Murray, and others, for suing the Trump administration to preserve Sanctuary City rights:
