In my first four years as legislator I have had the honor of serving as the Asst. Ranking Member on the Higher Education Committee where I have worked to make college more affordable by successfully supporting tuition reductions in technical and community and state colleges across the state.
In addition to Higher Ed I also serve on the Public Safety, Rules and Transportation Committees which are very important for the 42nd legislative District.
I have also received several legislative appointments to committees that were formed as a result of passed legislation: Task Force Against the Trafficking of Persons, Sunshine Committee, Washington State Arts Commission and the Work-Integrated Learning Advisory Committee.
In the recent 2-year 2017-18 biennium I primed sponsored the following bills:
HB 1375– CTC course material costs - Passed
HB 1775– Abortion after viability
HB 1776– Digoxin & KCI/med procedures
HB 2305– Business and occupation tax self-employed deadline
HB 2306– Veterans/concealed pistols
HB 2307– Fish & wildlife data - Passed
HB 2324– Higher Ed expression reports
HB 2434– State property tax reduction
HB 2969– Business and occupation return filing due date
Several of my bills were suggestions from constituents. Please contact me with any ideas you may have for legislation.
