Healthy People & Environment

health

Everyone should be able to breathe clean air, drink clean water, and be able to see a doctor when they get sick. The health of Washington's people and the resiliency of our regional ecosystems are not only keys to a great future for our state, but they are also crucial to economic progress. When people have health insurance, when our public health systems are strong, and when our climate and natural resources are protected, our economy is stronger and more resilient. That is why everyone should have access to affordable health care and our state should make investments in programs that protect public health and the environment.
