Rep. Jim Walsh hosting virtual town hall prior to the close of 2021 session, Thursday, April 22 at 6 p.m.

With the virtual 2021 session scheduled to conclude in a few days, Rep. Jim Walsh, R-Aberdeen, will host a virtual town hall on Thursday, April 22, from 6 to 7 p.m. to discuss a wide range of public policy topics being debated and decided in Olympia.

During the hour-long online event, Walsh will share an overview of the session and his perspective on several public policies. Topics include the proposed cap-and-trade program, the low-carbon fuel standard (LCFS), reforming the governor's emergency powers, and how critical race theory is intersecting with bills being introduced and voted on.

The 19th District lawmaker will also discuss the capital gains income tax and how increases are not necessary to pay for COVID-19 relief and other state programs, particularly given the funding Washington state has been allocated from the recent federal stimulus package.

Date: Thursday, April 22
Time: 6-7 p.m.
Registration is required: https://rotf.lol/erv3myy5
