Senate Bill 5336 is Law!
We are excited to announce the passage of Senate Bill 5336! This bill secures Vancouver’s place in the Washington Main Street Program, providing the framework and resources needed to support the critical work that we do. SB 5336 was passed unanimously by both the Senate and House, signed into law by Governor Jay Inslee on 4/14/23.
“The passage of SB 5336, spearheaded by Sens. Cleveland, Mullet, Wilson, and the City of Vancouver, is a huge win for the economic prosperity of southwest Washington and downtown Vancouver,” Michael Walker, executive director of Vancouver’s Downtown Association, said in the statement. “The dollars received through the Main Street Tax Incentive program allow for us to continue our transformational revitalization efforts that support our small businesses, property owners, and residents, in addition to developing a resilient economic base that continues to prosper post COVID and beyond.”
