Representative Drew Hansen chairs the Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee in the Washington State House of Representatives. Representative Hansen is responsible for some of Washington State’s most significant legislation, including Washington’s landmark free college tuition law, which the New York Times called “a gamechanger,” and the nation’s first state-level net neutrality law, which passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. He also sponsored the New Hope Act, a bipartisan criminal justice reform bill that helps people who have spent time in prison rebuild their lives, the DREAM Act 2.0 to protect state financial aid eligibility for DACA students, and a 2017 law cracking down on illegal gun purchases, which the New York Times profiled as a national model, saying “this is how it should work everywhere.”
Representative Hansen represents the 23rd Legislative District (most of Kitsap County), where he lives with his family.
