  • Who is your LAC Rep and what do they do?

    Each Legislative District is invited to elect or appoint two LAC Representatives. The duties of the LAC Rep is to attend monthly meetings with legislators on the 3rd Sunday afternoon of the month, to announce the LAC meetings at their LD meeting as part of committee reports, and to become an activist.

    As LAC rep, you will receive updates encouraging actions (emails, usually) supporting particular priority bills at particular points in their legislative process. Both our Democratic and Republican legislators need and can be influenced by the sincere, knowledgeable and timely expression of concerns by their constituents-you!

Currently the King County Democrats Legislative Action Committee (LAC) is chaired by Rich Erwin;cm=legislative .

The LAC is currently in the process of setting our legislative agenda for 2013 (draft available here; our 2012 agenda is also available).

The LAC meets monthly with legislators and sends out periodic Legislative Action newsletters throughout the Legislative session.  Please join our mailing list by checking legislative action on our volunteer sign up form.  Thanks
