Dear Neighbor,

In just the first few weeks of session, the Senate has taken action on major Democratic priorities that passed with strong bipartisan support. We passed a $4 billion capital budget with historic investments for school construction and $16 million in investments for the 37th Legislative District.

Early Action on Legislative Priorities

We worked to pass the Washington Voting Rights Act, which I introduced, Same Day Voter Registration and the DISCLOSE Act. Washington is leading the nation in expanding access to democracy, increasing opportunities for voting, and improving transparency in elections. We also passed legislation to expand opportunities for state financial aid to every student who wants to go to college, regardless of their immigration status.

Senate Page Program

The Washington State Senate Page Program provides an excellent opportunity for young people to get firsthand professional experience in our state Capitol and learn about the legislative process. The program is open to students between the ages of 14 and 17.  I encourage you to share this opportunity with as many students in our district as possible.
