The East King County Chambers Coalition will host their annual legislative breakfast on Jan. 4 at 7:30 a.m. in the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.

The coalition starts each new year with a breakfast in January, just days before the Legislature convenes. Representatives of the East King County business community will gather to hear what Eastside legislators will prioritize in the coming 60 day regular session– and to share a few ideas of their own.

All legislators from the I-405 suburban crescent will attend the bi-partisan breakfast and legislator panel, according to a press release.

This year, legislators plan to touch on several hot topics, including career and technical education at all levels; the housing affordability crisis; and increasing mobility with disruptive transportation technologies.

The coalition will welcome all who are interested in the legislative process, including business owners and operators, non-profit leaders and educators, local elected officials and members of the general public.

Visit the event webpage to register. Admission is $55 for individuals and $550 for a table of 10.
