The 2019 legislative session in Olympia is well underway with numerous bills being drafted and placed into various committees for both the House and the Senate’s consideration.  On Monday, Washington State Aviation Alliance distributed the attached letter seeking support for three important aviation bills that will dramatically improve our aviation industry (attached and highlighted in the chart below).  Provided WAMA is an active member of the Washington State Aviation Alliance and our Board of Directors voted to support these bills, we are asking members to reach out to their respective representatives and show their support.  Click on the links below to discover the following documents that will assist you in this process:
