UNINSURED RATE FALLS: A report from state Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler says that the share of Washington residents without health insurance has been cut in half since 2012. That’s a huge gain. The Affordable Care Act is credited with the decrease.
Paint. It is a product that many Washingtonians have sitting in their basement, barn or garage. Currently, we are instructed to dry out leftover latex paint and throw it in the garbage. This is wasteful and harmful to the environment. We are currently losing a valuable resource in leftover paint that can be recycled and re-sold into the marketplace. The Washington State Legislature should pass the paint stewardship bill so we have a statewide paint recycling program.
