body

                     WHEREAS, confronting climate change through effective strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for the impacts of a changing climate requires an integrated countywide effort involving public, private and non-governmental partnerships, and

                     WHEREAS, the King County executive and council unanimously adopted the 2015 King County Strategic Climate Action Plan, and

                     WHEREAS, the 2015 King County Strategic Climate Action Plan presents a bold course of action that will make progress toward achieving the countywide goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by eighty percent by 2050, and

                     WHEREAS, King County will continue to play a key role in the King County-Cities Climate Collaboration, whose members represent more than eighty percent of the population of the county, and which lays out a shared countywide vision for confronting climate change upon which the 2015 King County Strategic Climate Action Plan is built, and

                     WHEREAS, the 2015 King County Strategic Climate Action Plan strengthens the county's strategy to prepare for the impacts of a changing climate on local communities, infrastructure, economy, public health and safety and the natural environment, and

                     WHEREAS, the 2015 King County Strategic Climate Action Plan advances King County's guiding principle of promoting fairness and opportunity and eliminating inequities by considering the equity and social justice impacts in its decision-making on climate change strategies, and

                     WHEREAS, consistent with Ordinance 17285, which authorized the interlocal agreement for the King County-Cities Climate Collaboration, and with Motion 14449, which adopted the 2015 King County Strategic Climate Action Plan, the executive was requested to coordinate with staff of the transportation, economy and environment committee, or its successor, in developing the annual work plans and budget for the King County-Cities Climate Collaboration under the interlocal agreement, and

                     WHEREAS, Motion 14449 also requested that the executive submit by January 31, 2016, and every year thereafter, the King County-Cities Climate Collaboration annual work plan and budget to the council for acceptance by motion;

                     NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT MOVED by the Council of King County:
