Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Just a reminder, I am not advocating “for” or “against” any of the 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.

I told you there would not be a public hearing list over the next week or so. However, there are a few work sessions and public hearings in the morning next week before we start floor debate each day. The list is below.

Also, Sen. Brown and I are hosting Town Hall Meetings in the Tri-Cities on Saturday, March 16, 2013.  This is a great opportunity for you to express your concerns on issues that are important to you.  Hope to see you there!
