CALL/EMAIL YOUR LEGISLATORS IMMEDIATELY
Contact your legislators NOW and ask them to support SSB5251 to create a Statewide Tourism Marketing Program.
Tharinger, Steve (D)
Chapman, Mike (D)
Van De Wege, Kevin (D)
The bill will be considered by the Senate Ways & Means Committee early Friday and then on to the Senate and House floors.
We need to reach every legislator!
Tell them to Vote YES on SSB5251 to establish a Tourism Marketing Authority and the critical framework necessary to establish the statewide marketing program for Washington State.
VOTE YES on SSB5251
The structure of a Tourism Marketing Authority is necessary to ensure accountability and a return on the state investment.
Tourism impacts more than hotels, restaurants and destinations. It benefits retailers, outdoor recreation, state parks, ports and cities….and ultimately the taxpayers of Washington.
A statewide tourism marketing program would concentrate on bringing more tourists to Washington from outside the state and nation.
The Washington Tourism Alliance believes there is a minimum of a three-to-one return to the state treasury on investment for the proposed statewide tourism marketing program.
This return on investment will happen quickly. Unlike other state programs that may take years to show results, increased tourism will return the investment almost immediately.
