Ericksen TV: two bills to aid Whatcom County farms and fairs

This week my video update focuses on two bills I introduced to aid important entities in Whatcom County – our farms and our fairs. Senate Bill 5078 would modify state law to allow non-profit fairs to continue to rent out their facilities during the off-season without taking a tax hit. Senate Bill 5199 assists our region’s berry farmers, who have been practicing water-conservation techniques, by allowing them to retain their water rights.
