Tri-Citians Invade Olympia

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash.- About 100 Tri-City business leaders are in Olympia pushing issues important to the Columbia Basin.  

The group was also there Thursday meeting with the governor and legislators.  

They're pushing issues they've found significant over the last year.  

The group hopes their united voice will help get things done in Olympia that'll help the tri-cities region.

"We've made our views known and I think that we're going to see some positive results coming from our trip here today," said Ed Allen, who led the group.

The group was made up of the local Chambers of Commerce.  

They say continued growth in the agriculture industry and the Hanford Reach Center were their center points this week.
