body
      WHEREAS, the King County council and the King County executive have worked to develop a state legislative agenda and desire to bring their positions on state legislative issues to the attention of the 2008 Washington state Legislature, and
      WHEREAS, King County desires to work cooperatively with other local governments and other organizations such as the Washington State Association of Counties, the Washington Association of County Officials, the Suburban Cities Association, the Association of Washington Cities and the Washington Transit Association to achieve its 2008 legislative goals, and
      WHEREAS, counties have been recognized by the Legislature as partners with the state in the delivery of such critical services as public health, transportation, criminal justice, community and human services, and water resources, and
      WHEREAS, King County is dependent on a strong fiscal partnership with the state, and
      WHEREAS, if King County is going to be able to continue delivering basic government services to our residents, it needs a preservation, if not an expansion, of state support, and
      WHEREAS, the King County council and the King County executive will continue to review legislative developments for possible revisions of King County's 2008 state legislative program;
      NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT MOVED by the Council of King County:
      The King County council hereby adopts the attached 2008 State Legislative
 
Agenda and 2008 Statement of State Policy for King County as King County's highest priorities for action in the 2008 legislative session of the Washington state Legislature.
