Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The 2020 legislative session adjourned last Thursday. While it was certainly divisive at times, we ended on a note of bipartisanship, unanimously approving a bill to appropriate $175 million from the state's rainy-day fund to assist with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) response efforts. Governor Inslee signed that bill into law yesterday.

The Coronavirus has done a lot of damage, both to people's health and to the economy. But I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, we're going to overcome this. That's what we do as Americans. I've been heartened to see the cooperation between state and local government agencies over the past several weeks. It's all hands on deck at the moment, and everyone's working hard to keep Washingtonians safe, healthy and financially stable.

If there's anything you need, or if there are any needs in our community you're seeing that are not yet being met, please don't hesitate to reach out to me day or night. My phone number is (360) 786-7902, and my email address is Drew.MacEwen@leg.wa.gov. I also wanted to provide you with links to critical information, resources and guidance on COVID-19. If you are looking for information that isn't listed below, please get in touch with me.

It is an honor to serve you. We will get through this together, one day at a time.
