Dear Friends and Neighbors,

A reminder, I am not advocating “for” or “against” any of these bills in this e-mail update. This update is to keep you informed on what is happening in Olympia and give you the opportunity to possibly testify or offer comment on bills that could impact you. For those of you who have sent e-mail, THANK YOU! Your comments are appreciated.

There will not be a Public Hearing list for the next couple weeks; we will be on the House floor debating and voting on the bills that were voted out of their committees. Friday was the policy committee cutoff date. That means our policy committees are done holding public hearings on bills until we review the bills the Senate passes and sends over to us in the House.

Reminder:  Town hall meetings with Sen. Sharon Brown and myself will be held on March 16:

8 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.
Richland City Hall/Council Chamber
505 Swift Blvd.
Richland, WA 99352

10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
West Richland Library

1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
