Washington voters have supported protecting our seniors and people with disabilities twice in three years. Just last month, more than a million Washingtonians voted yes on Initiative 1163, clearly stating their support.

Despite these efforts, the Legislature has neglected to implement these sound policies regarding home health care workers. We must protect the most vulnerable, and this initiative does just that. The Legislature needs to balance the budget, raise revenue and fund I-1163.
