Metropolitan King County Council
Monday, March 5 – The council has unanimously adopted another step in removing gendered terms wherever possible in the King County code to make it gender-neutral.
The council gave its unanimous support to the City of Seattle’s bid to be a host city of the 2026 Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup. The legislation comes on the heels of last month’s action at the Seattle City Council to declare its own support for the effort.
