Pramila Jayapal: Preserve funding and access to state park lands

As a leading community activist, Pramila has brought communities together from around our state to combat climate change because she knows that protecting our environment isn't an isolated issue. It affects all aspects of our progressive movement--from fighting poverty to women's health to immigration reform.

As a State Senator, Pramila helped lead the effort to strip bad environmental provisions from the transportation package, and fight for the largest investment in multimodal transportation options. She also helped pass incentives for electric vehicles and investment in the state's electric vehicle infrastructure. As Ranking Member of Parks and Natural Resources, Pramila stopped attempts to undermine environmental provisions that preserved funding and access to state park lands.

Patty Murray: Federally fund Hanford Nuclear Reservation cleanup

Murray said Rossi's support for extending tax cuts for individuals who earn $200,000 a year or more could destabilize Social Security, halt the cleanup of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation and hurt student loans and construction projects that repair dams and other infrastructure. "If Mr. Rossi gets his way and we extend the Bush tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans, there is no way that we can sustain the programs that are so important in front of us," she said.
