Local News and Democracy

 We regularly add new items to the Legislation We're Following and News About Local News sections. Please check back regularly for updates!

Local news reporting plays a pivotal role in the health of our communities—and our democracy.

Extensive research, including a two-year study by the League of Women Voters of Washington, reports on the benefits of credible news sources that keep us up to date about what’s happening in our neighborhoods, at City Hall, in boardrooms and workplaces, in our schools and on our sports fields: Because of their reporting, we’re more likely to vote, be more engaged in our communities, see more candidates seek office, and be less likely to hold polarizing political viewpoints.

Studies also show a link between quality local news coverage and stronger public health campaigns and better oversight of government spending.

After thorough study and discussion known as reaching consensus, the 2,400-member League adopted a public policy on local news: “The League of Women Voters of Washington believes it is the responsibility of the government to provide support for conditions under which credible local journalism can survive and thrive.”

Several factors prompted the League’s study, “The Decline of Local News and Its Impact on Democracy,” and the subsequent adoption of our public policy position. Among them was Washington’s loss of three daily and more than two dozen weekly newspapers between 2005 and 2022. Also motivating our efforts is newsroom staffing across the state decreased by two-thirds, resulting in considerably less coverage.

In the League’s call for support for local news, we don’t distinguish between news published in print on paper or online: “The League supports credible and ethical local journalism, in whatever format it is published, as essential to our democracy.” Important, too, is that regardless of the source of support or assistance, the League is adamant that “control of a publication’s content must remain exclusively with the news organization.”

A Quick Look at the Study

Legislation We're Following

  • Following Australia’s lead, Canada passed legislation in late June requiring Big Tech companies to negotiate fair compensation with newspaper publishers for content the tech companies use on their platforms. Although tech companies are fighting Canada’s Online News Act, Canadian minister of Heritage Pablo Rodriguez recently urged other countries to pass similar legislation. The issue of fair compensation to newspapers for their original content continues to brew in the United States, where the Senate Judiciary Committee last month approved the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act. The act would require similar compensation in the United States. A showdown is expected in Congress this fall. Read an interview by the Seattle Times’ Brier Dudley with the Canadian minister of Heritage.

  • California’s Journalism Protection Act, AB 886 , would direct digital advertising giants to pay news outlets a “journalism usage fee” when they sell advertising alongside news content. The bill also would require publishers to invest 70% of the profits from that fee in journalism jobs.
    • Passed in the Assembly on June 1, 2023.
    • Ayes 55
    • Nos 6

Marko Liias, D-Everett, the Washington Legislature appropriated $2.4 million to establish a new public-interest journalism fellowship program at the Washington State University Edward R. Murrow College of Communication. Each year over the next two years, the program is expected to place eight recent graduates in two-year paid reporting positions at news outlets that lack local coverage.

  • Washington state Senate Bill 5199  passed in April 2023 and signed by the governor May 4, 2023, eliminates the business and occupation tax for publishers—print and online—for 10 years, beginning in January 2024. It replaces legislation that was set to expire in July 2024 that granted newspaper publishers a preferential tax rate.

    • The House vote was 89-7
