Budget Matters 2017 Policy Summits

 2017 Budget Matters Save_The_Date

We’re excited to announce that for the first time ever, the Budget & Policy Center will host two Budget Matters policy summits this year – one in Spokane in October and one in Seattle in December! The Spokane summit will focus on the impact of federal and state policy decisions on eastern Washington communities, and the Seattle summit will examine what it would take to lift up everyone to advance progress in our state. At the Seattle event, we’ll also unveil our 2017 Progress Index, the Budget & Policy Center’s framework for measuring shared prosperity in Washington state. #BudgetMatters17
