Welcome!

It’s an honor to work for my friends and neighbors in the heart of Spokane. The 2019 legislative session in Olympia began January 14. This is a “long” session (105 days) in which legislators need to draft operating, transportation and capital construction budgets for the next two years (biennium), as well as consider a variety of other important policy issues. As Chair of the House Appropriations Committee, it’s my job to work with both Republican and Democratic members in the House and Senate, and with the Governor’s office, to draft the state’s operating budget.

I enjoy hearing from you, and I will respond quickly if you need information or have a legislative issue you’d like me to work on. Simply contact me with your requests and concerns and either I or my legislative aide will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also . . .

Please stay in touch.

Sincerely,
