Rep. Jim Moeller

Thank you for visiting my website. As you know, this is an election year and we are required to follow legislative ethics rules to ensure state resources are not used for campaign purposes.

When election-year restrictions are in place, lawmakers who are up for re-election must limit outreach and external communications, including not sending out email updates after April 12, and not posting new content on our websites after June 30.

However, if you need information or have a legislative issue, please feel free to contact me with your requests and concerns and I will do my best to return your call, email or letter promptly.

Even though my legislative website will remain frozen until after the election, you can still get lots of useful information here:

Please keep in mind I am your representative year around, so don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Legislators voice support for equal healthcare coverage for transgender Washingtonians

The lesbian and gay members of the Washington State Legislature applaud Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler’s announcement that, in accordance with both the Affordable Care Act and Washington’s 2006 anti-discrimination law, that health insurance plans sold in Washington state must provide medically necessary care for transgender Washingtonians. “I am proud that once again Washington is leading the country in treating its LGBT citizens equally and with respect.  Transgender people deserve equal access to the healthcare system for their particular needs,” said … Continue reading

Train-safety letter to The Columbian

April 29, 2014

Rep. Jim Moeller

Letter to the editor The Columbian Thursday, April 29, 2014 To the editor, I applaud Federal Railroad Administration proposals for strengthening public safety, including a condition that trains hauling crude oil carry at least two crew members. It’s troubling that these trains today are crewed by only one person. Related legislation demanding greater safety made it partway through Olympia this year. I co-sponsored House Bill 2718 requiring at least two crew on trains moving hazardous materials. Although the proposal cleared … Continue reading

Spring 2014 Report to the 49th District

Reps. Jim Moeller & Sharon Wylie

Spring 2014 Report to the 49th District

Early this past January, the state House of Representatives jumped quickly out of the starting gate. Just a few hours into session, we passed the “DREAM Act” (SB 6523), a bipartisan step to make sure that all deserving, hard-working young people have a fair chance to go to college. This measure, long-sought here in Washington (and already on the books in many other states), became the first significant “first-day-of-session” bill in many years to pass either chamber.  It is only … Continue reading

A legislator’s full plate gets fuller

What would you think about a lawmaker who, when he’s not busy making laws in Olympia, has established a full-time, non-legislative career of almost 30 years back in his home district? That’s not all. The lawmaker in question has duties as House Speaker Pro Tempore when the Legislature is in session. Further, that same lawmaker also has seats on the House committees on Rules, Health Care & Wellness, Labor & Workforce Development, and Transportation. You’d probably think the lawmaker already … Continue reading
