Abstract: There was some expectation that the 2020 legislative session was going to be quiet on water resource issues – boy were we wrong! The legislature debated several bills about water transfers and water banking. They also considered bills on instream flows, drought, and bottled water. Carrie will discuss the water resource-related bills that were introduced, describe the debates that ensued, and review the bills that passed.

Bio: Carrie Sessions is the Policy, Legislative and Economic Analyst for the Department of Ecology’s Water Resources Program. In that role, she leads discussions about statewide policy issues and potential policy changes, analyzes proposed rules and legislation, and works with the Legislature on changes to water law . Prior to joining Ecology, Carrie did policy and economic analysis on the state, federal and international levels, including working for consulting firms and for the United Nations Environment Program. She also spent several years teaching applied leadership on wilderness expeditions. Carrie is a graduate of Colorado College and holds a MPA and MS from the University of Washington in environmental policy and economics, with an emphasis in water resource management. She graduated from all three programs with top academic honors.
