Subject: Urgent Need for Increased Funding for Landslide Prevention and Cleanup Dear Washington State Lawmakers , I am writing to urge you to prioritize and increase funding for landslide prevention and cleanup efforts across our state. The recent surge in landslides has not only caused significant damage to property and infrastructure but has also endangered the lives of our citizens. Landslides are a natural phenomenon, exacerbated by factors such as deforestation, urbanization, and climate change. With the increasing frequency and severity of these events, it is imperative that we take proactive measures to mitigate their impact on our communities. By allocating more resources to landslide prevention initiatives, such as slope stabilization projects, early warning systems, and land use planning, we can reduce the risk of future disasters and safeguard both lives and property. Furthermore, increased funding for landslide cleanup efforts is crucial for restoring affected areas and supporting the communities that have been devastated by these events. This includes providing assistance to affected residents, repairing damaged infrastructure, and implementing long-term recovery plans. Investing in landslide prevention and cleanup is not just a matter of public safety, but also economic prudence. The cost of inaction far outweighs the expense of proactive measures. By taking decisive action now, we can save lives, protect property, and ensure the resilience of our state in the face of natural hazards. I urge you to support legislation that allocates adequate funding for landslide prevention and cleanup efforts. Together, we can build a safer and more resilient Washington for generations to come. Thank you for your attention to this critical issue. Sincerely Garrett Beauregard
