Statewide tourism bill reintroduced

Since 2011, Washington has been the only state in the nation without a dedicated tourism program. SB 5251 would create the Washington Tourism Marketing Authority to manage statewide tourism efforts.  The bill was introduced last session but stalled in Rules. The measure is scheduled for public hearing on January 18 in front of the Senate Economic Development and International Trade Committee.
