Our Legislative Work

Since its founding in 1999, NoHLA has promoted state-level policies that improve access to affordable, quality health care for lower-income residents. As part of that work, NoHLA:

  • Participates in broad coalitions, such as the Healthy Washington Coalition, to help identify key issues that affect health care for lower-income Washington residents.

  • Develops policy priorities and advocates for regulatory or legislative solutions.

  • Monitors state bill and budget proposals during each legislative session.
