Give to the PAC for a business-friendlier Washington

The Washington Hospitality Association PAC is one of the leading political action committees in Washington state today. As representatives of the state’s hospitality industry, we know how important it is your voice is heard in Olympia. Every day new proposals are made affecting our industry, from unfair business taxes and regulations to the threat of de-funding our WorkSafe program. The PAC supports pro-business candidates and initiatives in Washington state.

 

Why contribute?

Having a strong, healthy PAC is critical to serving our industry and helping your business succeed especially during these uncertain times. In fact, in the last year, the PAC has helped:

  • $100 million in grant money for restaurants who did not receive the RRF. Of that $100 million, $15 million is reserved for hotels that were impacted by the eviction moratorium.
  • $15 million in relief by reducing liquor license fees by 50% through December 31, 2023.
  • $200 million in unemployment insurance relief.
  • Defeated SB 5113, which would expand the use of lodging taxes for affordable housing.
  • Defeated HB 1837, which would have lifted a 20-year prohibition on rulemaking related to ergonomics
  • Defeated SB 5903, which concerns multimodal transportation for drive up establishments.
