Washington Under-40 Caucus Members Speak on Common Ground Podcast

February 8, 2016

Democratic state Rep. Marcus Riccelli and Republican Rep. Hans Zeiger, members of the under-40 caucus in the Legislature, join us for a discussion on bipartisanship in Olympia.

Washington Under-40 Caucus Co-Chairs Rep. Marcus Riccelli (D-Spokane) and Rep. Hans Zeiger (R-Puyallup) joined Policy Today’s Common Ground podcast on February 8th, 2016. The Representatives spok on cooperation, and getting along across party lines in Olympia. Riccelli expressed that, “… to make things work in our community, we [must] reach across the aisle.” Riccelli and Zeiger saw the need to launch the Under-40 caucus, and have found common ground on a variety of issues. The podcast highlights the caucuses’ progress, which includes a transportation bill (HB 1978), as well as a bipartisan budget bill which has resulted in lower college tuition and other benefits for Millennials.
