About

Smarter Government Washington is the website of former Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna. SGW seeks positive solutions for a leaner, more efficient, and less expensive state government.

We all have a stake in this, so SGW takes a collaborative approach, soliciting ideas and involvement from experts, state employees, and regular citizens to make government more effective. We also follow what is happening in state governments around the nation to see what is working well, and what isn’t, and what lessons we can learn to make Washington’s state government a work better for all of us.
