THE MANIFEST JANUARY 18, 2019

THE NEW WASHINGTON TOURISM ALLIANCE

For several years, Washington State was one of the lowest spenders in state tourism budgets, and in June 2011, the state tourism office was closed by the legislature. By comparison, for 2016-2017 annual tourism spending, Oregon spent $32 million, California, $117 million; Arizona, $22 million; Utah, $23 million; British Columbia, $50 million.

SPOTLIGHT

Port of Vancouver's Groundwater Cleanup Success

The Port of Vancouver has made remarkable progress in their efforts to clean up pollution released long ago by a company that occupied what is now port property. Groundwater was polluted decades ago by chlorinated solvents from the Cadet Manufacturing and Swan facilities, which used a chlorinated solvent to make electric heaters.

- A MONTHLY COLUMN FROM ERIC JOHNSON -

So, it has been over six months since every port in the state gained clear and modernized authority to provide broadband infrastructure. Since that time, I have either witnessed or been a part of many discussions about what exactly to do with this new authority.
