CONTACT LEGISLATORS TO SUPPORT CLEAN AIR IN NORTH LAKE WA via HB 1057

Dear Supporters of Clean Air in North Lake Washington: WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Please contact the committee members to support HB 1057 for our clean air. The Bill needs to pass out of committee soon! These are the suggested talking points (compiled by our lobbyist Shelly and checked by our City Manager Rob Karlinsey)

If you can get a meeting with one of the legislators, invite others to join the conversation, if you wish! Thank you in advance.

Key points to make in follow up communication with legislators:

  • This bill does not change current air quality or odor standards, it only changes who can file a complaint
  • This allows users of public trails, parks and common areas to file a complaint. Current law only allows those with a possessory right to file a complaint, which includes residents whether property owners or renters and businesses, owners or employees.
  • Once a complaint is received, a qualified, trained inspector (clean air agency or city staff member) goes to the location where the complaint was filed in order to investigate. For odor complaints there is a specific odor evaluation form, using a scale of 0 to 4, that is completed.
  • If warranted, the clean air agency would then file a notice of violation to the entity with the air quality violation and work with the entity to resolve the violation.
  • This bill does not create a private right of action. Investigation and enforcement still falls within the authority of the clean air agency (and in Kenmore’s case, response to the complaint is delegated to the City of Kenmore).
  • This change will allow the problem to be addressed at the local level; under current law, locals are limited in their reporting ability.
  • It was stated during testimony that the Kenmore asphalt plant is in compliance with existing standards. Even if that is the case, which is debatable, the standards for this facility were established long before a community and city grew up around it. The standards should be updated to reflect the urban nature of this area but they have not been.

Please contact the Legislators in the Committee to support clean air on the Burke Gilman Trail in Kenmore First Week February 2021!

Do you smell stinky asphalt on the Burke Gilman in Kenmore???? (Thank you, Tracy, for this example of a letter!)

Call to Action!!!!

Who: Anyone living in Washington State who would like to speak up for environment and climate and specifically for clean air

What: Support HB 1057, an act relating to clarifying the meaning of the term “enjoyment of life and property” within the clean air act; amending RCW 3 70A.15.1030; and creating a new section (I’ll put the new section in the comments so you can read it). This bill would give community members greater agency to report odors and have them investigated.

Time: 5 minutes or less if you choose OPTION 1; 10 or so minutes if you choose OPTION 2 or OPTION 3.

How:
OPTION 1: Show your support for HB 1057 by
clicking ‘Comment on this bill;’
filling out the required fields;
clicking ‘Support;’
and writing something to the effect of ‘I support clean air’ in the comment field.

https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=1057…
OPTION 2:
Show your support for HB 1057 by
clicking ‘Comment on this bill;’
filling out the required fields;
clicking ‘Support;’
and writing a longer, personalized comment in the comment field (limited to 1,000 characters).

https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=1057…
OPTION 3:
Show your support for HB 1057 by emailing your Washington State Legislator. Link to find contact information for your Washington State Legislators here. Use email addresses rather than form pages to avoid character limits.

Example text (feel free to use whatever you would like of mine). More talking points in the comments.

I customized my address to Representative Gerry Pollet and Representative Javier Valdez; I live in the 46th Legislative District.

Dear Honorable Representative,

I write, as a constituent in Kenmore, WA, in support of HB 1057. My interest in this bill is a general passion for a sustainable, healthy environment and climate and a specific concern about an environmental and public health injustice happening with emissions from an asphalt plant located at the heart of my urban/suburban community.

The bill, as I understand it, does not change current air quality or odor standards or a right of private action. It would, however, allow me, as a resident who lives outside the current legally acknowledged possessory right area but who enjoys public parks and spaces within that area, to file a complaint. Once such a complaint is registered, the protocol for responding to it would remain unchanged.

Although my interest in this bill stems from a specific issue in my local community, I imagine there are many communities across the state that would benefit from greater agency to advocate for clean, healthy air through legally recognized and enforceable mechanisms. Clean air is vital to everyone’s health.

Thank you for your hard work, care, and attention to HB 1057.

Sincerely,
Tracy Banaszynski
