Federal environmental policy

Between 2017 and 2021, the previous federal administration attempted to roll back several major environmental regulations and weaken the protections provided by federal environmental laws.

We are now working with the current U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to restore these protections, strengthen our nation’s environmental policies, and prepare for the future by addressing climate change, and supporting unbiased research and scientific analysis.

Together with our federal partners, we want to improve the health of Washingtonians and protect our water, land, air and climate from pollution.
