State Rep. Brandon Vick, R-Vancouver, was named by Gov. Jay Inslee to a legislative task force charged with guiding the state through the economic fallout from COVID-19.
The Business Recovery Legislative Task Force will work with the governor’s office to provide input and recommendations as the region’s economy restarts.
“As we continue to lose restaurants and other family-owned businesses, we lose much more than a paycheck,” Vick said in a media release. “So, it’s vital to start getting back to work in a safe and efficient manner. Yes, we must still protect lives, but I’m confident we can do that and save our economy at the same time.”
The committee held its first meeting remotely on Friday.
