Legislators in Olympia need to make protecting vulnerable individuals a priority. They need to follow the will of the voters and implement Initiative 1163, which has been passed twice in three years.

The initiative protects seniors and people with disabilities and enables folks to stay in their homes versus having to be placed in expensive nursing homes. Washington voters have spoken loud and clear: Protect our most vulnerable and implement I-1163.
