Keep Tabs On Olympia

The Association of Washington Business (AWB) serves as the state’s chamber of commerce and prides itself on building a solid record of success in the legislative and regulatory arenas. The AWB membership (including the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber), are a sought-after source with the Governor, Legislature and state agencies for business input on policy matters.

AWB provides several quick and easy ways to keep pace with the Legislature this session:
  • Find your legislator and contact them with one click on AWB’s new site, Washington Business Votes.
  • You can also keep tabs on all of the bills affecting business in our state through AWB’s Jobmakers site. This Web page tracks the progress of business-related legislation and the lawmakers who support or oppose the bills.

Businesses can also follow AWB on Twitter (@awbolympia) or read their blog, Olympia Business Watch and stay current on the latest news and information coming out of Olympia this session.

The Washington Alliance for a Competitive Economy (WashACE) a coalition of Washington business associations and chambers (including Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber), also provides regular analysis, action alerts and information about business-related bills and policy decisions during session.
