Paid Family Leave Bill Signing – You are Invited to Celebrate with Us!

Happy 4th of July!

This year, we hope you will consider extending your celebration an extra day – and join us in Olympia for the Governor’s bill signing, of SB 5975, Paid Family & Medical Leave.

Wednesday, July 5th, 2pm
Governor’s Office
Legislative Building
Olympia, WA

Several states across the country have shut down state government, but here in Olympia we have something to celebrate – an example of how government SHOULD work. This year, we were able to work with Republicans and Democrats, the House and Senate, Businesses and Labor to reach a compromise on a major policy issue. Washington’s Paid Family Leave law will be the first in the country that considers the needs of workers and families AND the impact on businesses. To read more about this policy click here, and the association’s press release click here.

This also gives us an opportunity to remind lawmakers that families own and operate businesses across the state! Families are welcome. 

Please RSVP to Zooie at ZooieA@wahospitality.org, so we know to expect you and we will send details about parking, location, etc.
