Legislation

Advocating for our members and promoting the value of the Green Industry to legislators and policymakers is an important priority for WALP. To do this, we address legislative and regulatory issues that affect the Landscaping Industry. Assisting in the coordination of these efforts are WALP’s Government Affairs Committee.

WALP also strives to keep our members informed about Washington’s legislative and regulatory activities through advisories, issue briefs, our monthly magazine, Northwest Landscape Professional, and other updates.

To be heard in Olympia, make sure you join WALP for one of the most important days of the year for Landscape Professionals - WALP's Legislative Day. Check the WALP calendar for information on the current year's event. Below are also a number of links to helpful resources and information.
