Nine men and one woman from Washington state made this year's list of American billionaires, recently updated by Forbes magazine.
The group of 10 had an oversized influence on Washington state politics in 2012. But so far this year, the billionaires are mostly sitting on the sidelines.
The head of the Seattle-based Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation says he’s stepping down. Jeff Raikes made the announcement Tuesday morning. He says he’ll stay on the job until a replacement is found.
Jeff Raikes talked to KUOW’s Marcie Sillman about his top accomplishments over the past five years as the Foundation's chief.
