Video Update: Supporting Children Who Witness Violence & Working Families Tax Credit

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Children who witness violence are also victims of that violence. That is why I have proposed legislation to create a better system to support and heal children who have been exposed to violence. Learn more about House Bill 1439 in this week’s GoodMinute.

A New Tax Credit for Washington Workers Starts in 2023!

WFTC Requirements Infographic

The Working Families Tax Credit is a new program that will provide payments of up to $1,200 to low-to-moderate income individuals and families. The amounts are based on income level and the number of qualifying children (if any).

This program will help us stimulate local economies, promote racial equity, and provide the financial stability Washington families need right now. To find more information in several available languages, visit

As always, please reach out if you have questions, comments, or ideas. Look forward to another legislative update from me soon.

All best wishes,

Roger Goodman
Representative, 45th District
Washington State Legislature
