Joe has successfully passed into law reforms to our environmental laws that improve the functioning of those laws without compromising environmental protections.
He has strongly advocated for cleaning up Puget Sound, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting and improving Washington’s land use laws, and expanding access to the electoral process for historically disenfranchised populations like low-income people and youth.
