Dear Friends and Neighbors,
In preparation for the 2020 session, lawmakers will be heading back to Olympia next week for Committee Assembly days. During these two days, committees will be meeting to receive briefings on some of the most pressing issues facing our state, and then discussing potential solutions.
Our caucus will also be meeting to continue a discussion we started at a retreat last month about what our top priorities will be during the 60-day session. At the top of the list is continuing to fight for you and your family against a majority that's raised your taxes, increased spending at an unsustainable rate, and irresponsibly expanded the size and scope of government. Because of their policies, Washington state has become less affordable and less competitive with our neighbors. That's unacceptable, and we will continue making that clear in our communications.
As session draws closer, I want to hear from you. What are your top priorities for the Legislature in 2020? What issues do you care most about? What policies do you support or oppose? I invite you to take my 10-question survey here. I'll be sharing the results in my next email update later this month.
Thank you in advance for your responses. It is an honor to serve you in the Legislature.
