Water Availability to Support Development

Senate Bill 6091, related to ensuring water availability to support development, was signed into law last week by Governor Inslee. This bill responds to issues counties and local governments faced in light of the Whatcom County v. Hirst, Futurewise, et. al., 186 Wn.2d 648 (2016), commonly known as the "Hirst Decision."
