Hello and thanks for visiting my website,
With the long 2015 legislative session now behind us, I am now back to work locally in the 10th Legislative District. As you likely know, this recent session was the longest in our state's history at 173 days. While the length of the legislative session was very frustrating for everyone, it is important to recognize that we emerged with a strong bi-partisan budget that is sustainable into the future. While I feel that we still have ground to gain in regards to properly prioritizing our spending, we avoided the proposal of devastating tax increases that would have a drastic effect on our still fragile economy. This is arguably the most responsible budget our state has passed in recent history, as imperfect as it is.
This session I played a role in passing policy and funding focused on basic education, mental health, early learning and higher education tuition reductions that will make the expense of sending our students to college much more affordable. These policy improvements will really make a difference in many people’s lives and I am honored to be a part of these continuing efforts.
The legislature also passed a new $16 billion transportation tax package. While I opposed the final legislation which includes a record 11.9 cent gas tax increase and vehicle fees, I made a difference working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to adopt responsible reforms to the way our Department of Transportation does business in an attempt to drive down the cost of transportation maintenance and construction projects.
On the public safety front, I was successful in preventing passage of legislation that would have lowered accountability for property crime offenders. This legislation was intended to drive down recidivism for property crime offenders, which is a noble cause. However, in the end the proposal would have simply allowed offenders to have a shorter sentence or even worse, avoid jail sentences or badly needed drug treatment and counselling all together.
I am proud to continue to serve the citizens of the 10th Legislative District during this historic time. I look forward to continuing to make a difference for local residents and the entire state of Washington. I am always interested in hearing from you and receiving feedback. Please feel free to contact me anytime!
