Washington State House Democrats


A productive 2018 session

For the first time since 2014, the Washington State Legislature adjourned on time, without going into special session. I am honored to have worked with the new Democratic Senate Majority and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to have passed legislation that fully funded education, provided property tax relief, and supports our most vulnerable community members.

To the governor’s desk

Two of my priority bills were signed by Governor Inslee on Thursday, March 15.

House Bill 2578, which provides protections for tenants who receive rental assistance, is a step to alleviate Washington’s housing crisis. Everyone deserves a roof over their head, and this bill is a bi-partisan effort to remove barriers and support effective landlord-tenant relationships. Click here for more information.

House Bill 2443 was also signed into law. This bill adds the WSU Medical School to the Family Medicine Residency Network (FRMN), and is another tool as we work to help medically undeserved areas address their physician shortage. Click here for more information.

We are in this together!

My work in Olympia is only part of my job as your state legislator. Now that I’m back in Spokane, I want to hear from you. We are organizing an upcoming town hall, and I am always happy to meet in my Spokane office. Stay in touch, and let me know how I can best represent YOU. As always, it is an honor to serve.

Best Regards,
