Sign the petition to save public health in Seattle/​King County

Public health is a foundation of thriving communities. Yet, much of King County’s public health system now risks being shuttered away permanently. Sign the petition urging King County to retain public health services that support nearly 80,000 vulnerable clients a year.


Join the WSNA Political Action Committee (WSNA-PAC) and help invest in growing the voice of nurses in Olympia. WSNA-PAC is focused on supporting people running for state legislative office who support nurses and to help support nurses who want to run for legislative office themselves.

Legislator voting records

WSNA's legislator voting records are developed based on the priority bills we supported during a given year's Washington state legislative session. Not all WSNA priority bills are always voted on in both chambers, which is why the list of bills tracked on the report may differ from Senate to House. As the voting records indicate, most nursing issues have bipartisan support in Olympia.

To see how legislators voted on other labor priorities during the 2023 session, check out the Washington State Labor Council’s voting record (PDF).
