Bipartisan cooperation for a major new energy policy can be hard to come by, but not when both parties agree on calling for new energy independence strategies. In legislative session, Senate Bill 6508 calling for a minimum renewable energy standard passed the Washington State Senate and is off to the Governor for an expected signature into law.

"This is truly a bill the entire state can be proud of. We're talking about new jobs, cleaner air, and more independence from oil. That's a win-win for all citizens of Washington." -- 13th District Rep. Janea Holmquist, R-Moses Lake
