Your Update on What's Happening at the King County Council  

Dear Friends and Neighbors,  

This week I introduced legislation that would establish a whistleblower hotline for reporting illegitimate uses of emergency COVID-19 funds. With the highest inflation level since 1981 and increased pressure on the budget of everyday Americans, I want to make sure that taxpayer money is being spent wisely.

The introduction of this legislation comes after recent discussion on fraud in the COVID-19 relief programs in the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee, an independent oversight committee created by Congress. The Committee highlighted improper payments that were made to applicants who should have been ineligible to receive the funds and the need for better data collection. This also comes after King County began an audit of it’s COVID-19 rental assistance program. So far, the County has uncovered at least 130 cases of inappropriate rental assistance payments ranging from $20,000 to $45,000.

As this legislation moves through the Council's process, I will keep you updated.

All my best,
