The WashBankPAC, through the StatePAC and FedPAC, financially backs candidates that demonstrate an understanding of banking industry needs. By combining the resources of thousands of bankers across Washington state, the PACs gives our industry a more effective voice in the halls of government.

The members of the WBA Government Relations Committee (GRC) oversee distribution of funds and every dollar contributed to the PACs goes directly to candidates. Donations to the StatePAC and FedPAC are voluntary, welcome at any time, and may be directed to two separate funds.
