Greater Spokane Incorporated, the area's main business advocacy group, has launched a satellite website to gather comments and opinions from area constituents.
It's YourPolicyVoice.org, and it launched in concert with the recent visit by GSI and about 90 business people to Olympia last week to speak to legislators about Eastern Washington issues.
The goal is to have easier ways for users to submit letters to public officials on key issues. Site users can also use GSI's agenda summaries, legislative data and outlines of relevant public policy topics.
"This site allows our membership and the public to have a strong voice in issues related to them and their business," said Rich Hadley, President and CEO of Greater Spokane Incorporated. "What goes on in Olympia, and what goes on in D.C. affects every business. Our hope is that this site becomes a valuable resource for everyone."
