Ask Governor Inslee to lead on orca recovery

The Orca Recovery Task Force has completed its first year of work, releasing a report with a suite of ambitious actions addressing prey, vessels, and pollution. The task force will continue in 2019, but now is the time for the Governor to act on the 2018 recommended actions.

Contact Governor Inslee today and ask him to turn those recommendations into actions that will help the Southern Resident orca population survive and recover.

Hello, my name is _____ and I live in ______. 

I am calling to urge you to recognize the value of fully funding environmental programs. Environmental programs are a mere 1.9% of the state operating budget but these programs provide benefits to communities across the state through clean air, clean water, and thriving communities that make Washington a great place to live, work, and play.   

Specifically, I hope you will adopt a final budget that maintains funding for existing environmental programs and provide new funding for:

- Oil spill prevention (HB 1611)

- Reducing toxic pollution (HB 2182)

- The Clean Air Rule

- Puget Sound recovery

Thank you for all of your hard work during the 2017 legislative session and for considering my comments. I look forward to hearing from you, I can be reached at __(Phone Number)__.
