Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The 2022 legislative session is under way. With just 60 days to complete our work, I am hopeful we will use the allotted time wisely to deliver real solutions for Washington families.

2022 session | Legislative priorities

The ongoing pandemic has affected more than our health. Kids are struggling to receive a basic education, small businesses are suffering, and inflation is making life more difficult for families and those on fixed incomes.

It's not all bad news, however; with a four-year operating budget surplus projected to be $8.8 billion, $2.2 billion in reserves, and $1.2 billion in unspent federal stimulus funds, the state has more than enough to help Washingtonians weather this storm.

Alongside my colleagues in the House and Senate, I will be working to:

Another virtual legislative session

Like last year, the Legislature will be meeting virtually. Keeping you informed is a top priority for me. In the weeks to come, I will do my best to remain as accessible as possible and ensure your state government stays accountable and transparent.
