The Hunters Heritage Council has named Larry Hoff Legislator of the year for 2020. Their PAC has also endorsed Hoff for reelection as State Representative in the 18th Legislative district.
“I was raised with the heritage of hunting and conservation. I have fought hard to represent hunters and conservationists and protect their rights to engage in the sports they love. To have my efforts recognized by The Hunter’s Heritage Council is a high honor,” Hoff said.
According to their website, “In Washington State, there is only one PAC that works to elect pro-hunting candidates at the state and local level and that is the Hunters Heritage Council PAC. HHC PAC is dependent on the generosity of hunters, sportsmen and their organizations for its funding.”

I-1631 – – the Carbon Tax initiative has been officially named the “PROTECT WASHINGTON ACT”. I just finished reading it and it does a lot of things but “protecting Washington” is not one of them.
Let me preface this by stating that no one is more appreciative of clean air and water and our beautiful environment than I am. As an avid outdoors-man, I feel honored to live in an environment that defines “clean” as its guiding principle. Preserving our natural beauty is more than vital to our state’s core beliefs. As you read I-1631 however, you will soon see that this initiative only serves to add many additional layers of high cost government bureaucracy to an already bloated state government. It calls for politically appointed boards to authorize other politically appointed boards to direct a variety of state agencies to draft numerous regulations and policies that are merely referred to in concept within the initiative. Its funding core includes a tax on carbon emitters which equates to a fuel tax (projected to be around 15 cents per gallon) for all consumers in addition to the higher cost of many products as the majority of everything we purchase is delivered by trucks, which would be paying the higher cost of fuel.
Although there are many other equally troubling facets within I-1631, the unobstructed growth of government, coupled with the tax to pay for this growth being hoisted on the backs of our citizens gives me the greatest concern.
If all Washingtonian’s read I-1631 prior to voting on it in November, it would die of its own weight. I urge you to read all or at least parts so that you can help interpret it for your friends and neighbors.
