On May 21, 2019, Governor Inslee signed a significant bill sponsored by Sen. David Frockt D-46 to improve our toxic cleanup capabilities for the first time in nearly three decades.

A coalition of environmentalists, Port associations, and local governments came together for this landmark effort. 

Said Frockt, "Been trying for many years to get something like this through over the opposition of the oil industry. Good timing and good policy came together this year to make it happen. 
"Special thanks to Reuven Carlyle, Christine Rolfes, Guy Palumbo, Gael Tarleton, Joe Fitzgibbon, Strom Petersen and Steve Tharinger for their support and help to get this through both the House and Senate in the last week of the session. Oh ...and our staff is the best.."

See the statement from the Washington Environmental Council to understand why it was so needed. (Governor Inslee signs largest overhaul of state toxic clean-up program in decades)

The 46th legislative district includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Lake City, Northgate and northeast Seattle.
