Rep. Tharinger poses with members of the Senior Lobby and constituents
I am pleased to announce the Legislature did support the continuation of the Joint Legislative Executive Committee on Aging and Disability (JLEC). I am looking forward to continuing my work as the JLEC committee co-chair to find innovative and sustainable ways to address the needs of our aging populations.
