About

Lens – at thelens.news – is a go-to journalism resource on Washington state. We dig deep into state government and politics; economic growth and business climate, energy and natural resource policy, taxation and regulation, infrastructure, and K-12 and higher ed. With an accent on data, fact-finding, and rationality, Lens brings things into focus.

What makes for a healthy job market, competitive business environment, and a more prosperous Washington is what concerns us at Lens.
