Inter-Governmental Relations

The Public Affairs division advocate for the city’s adopted State Legislative Agendas, with specific focus on:

  • Promoting Renton’s interests and pursue funding opportunities for infrastructure and economic development in partnership with the city’s county, state and federal representatives.

  • Passage of legislation and funding by the Legislature to enact a comprehensive transportation investment package including Interstate I‐405 and I‐405/SR‐167 investments, as well as funding and options for local governments.

  • Passage of legislation to restore full excise tax distributions for cities and counties and a percentage growth in liquor profits for cities and counties.

  • Passage of legislation to consolidate laws and regulations on retail (Initiative 502) and medical marijuana use, and to direct more of the projected revenues from marijuana sales to the local law enforcement agencies that will be impacted by the I‐502 rules.

  • Secure funding to support implementation of Sunset Park as part of the Sunset Area Community Investment Strategy.
