Eye On Olympia

“We are of course neutral on this bill…”

Nonprofit groups walk a bit of a tightrope when lobbying for or against something, which is why press releases from them often come with a peculiar caveat like this one: “Nothing in this publication should be construed as an attempt to aid or hinder the passage of any legislation or ballot measure.”

So it wasn’t particularly surprising when the Evergreen Freedom Foundation’s Scott Dilley started his comments on a bill (unionizing child care workers) yesterday with this sentence: “We are of course neutral on this bill.”

But given what followed, lawmakers seemed pretty skeptical of that neutrality. Watch.
