News, Updates & Resources for the Region
PNWER's annual capital visits kicked off this January 13 with PNWER officers traveling to Helena, Montana before heading to Boise, Idaho; Salem, Oregon; Olympia, Washington; and Juneau, Alaska. Every year, PNWER visits our jurisdictions' capitals to bring the issues of our region to the attention of our public sector leaders and forge and strengthen relationships across borders. The PNWER delegation had a number of successful meetings with the governors, lieutenant governors, and legislators from the state capitals of our region.
Topics of discussion ranged from trade and NAFTA 2.0
(USMCA) to invasive species to energy.
