SPOKANE, Wash. -

Lisa Brown, former WSU Chancellor and state legislator, announced her campaign for Congress in Washington’s 5th congressional district.

Brown released the following statement and announcement video:

“Eastern Washington is one of the most beautiful and dynamic parts of our country, but even with all that we love about our region, too many people in our community are being left behind. As I traveled around the region as we were creating the WSU medical school, I heard from families scared of losing their healthcare, that they won’t be able to leave a better life for their children, and that they won’t be able to retire in dignity.”

“In my time representing Spokane in the state legislature and for the last five years at WSU, I’ve worked with Republicans and Democrats to get things done – growing our economy by investing in education, infrastructure, and making sure Eastern Washington got its fair share of public resources.”

“Good ideas and good solutions don’t come with a partisan label. We need more people talking to each other, instead of blaming each other. I know we can work together to find common ground and get results because that’s what I’ve done my entire life. That’s the experience I’ll bring to Congress.”                                                                                                    

Lisa Brown has been a lifelong advocate for the people of Eastern Washington. A mother, an economist, and an educator, Lisa taught at Eastern Washington University and Gonzaga University. In the state legislature, Lisa championed job-creating legislation like the Strategic Economic Development Fund, the Motion Picture Competitiveness Fund, and countless infrastructure projects like the North Spokane Corridor and the Fox Theater.

    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Proposed changes to Washington state's overtime rules could make more professional workers eligible for time-and-a-half pay. The Spokesman-Review reports a draft concept by the state Department of Labor and Industries proposes overtime eligibility for workers earning up to $74,800 in 2019. The proposals are linked to a multiplier of the state's minimum wage, which will increase to $12 per hour next year and $13.50 per hour in 2020.

    MILWAUKEE (AP) - Police dogs have always helped their human counterparts through their eyes and nose. Now some police dogs are getting their own backup - cameras that transmit live video.    The devices generally attach to dogs' backs on a vest and transmit video to a handler watching from a screen, possibly on their wrist or around their necks.
