Weekly Roundup: Gun Safety and Tobacco 21


Just a few weeks ago, I started the 2019 Legislative Session and we’re off to a busy start here in Olympia.

My office receives tens of thousands of constituent contacts during the legislative session. While we read all of your emails, responding to each one individually in a timely manner can be a challenge. Therefore, my office is exploring new ways to stay in touch with constituents.

This week, many of you contacted us regarding gun safety and policies. We have several gun polices moving through this session and it’s critical that I know your thoughts so we can pass legislation that works.

My office has also received several emails in support of Tobacco 21, which would raise the age to 21 for tobacco products. I’m really proud of this bipartisan bill and was pleased to vote to move it out of committee to the next step. Thank you so much for writing and calling my office to share your thoughts.

If you’re on Facebook, please like my official legislative Facebook page to stay up to date on the work I am doing during this legislative session. We’ll be using email and our Facebook page to share videos on issues I’m hearing about from people back home so you know where I stand on issues that are important to you.
