Thank you for visiting my website. I appreciate your interest in our citizen Legislature.

Here, you can find information about work I am doing in the Legislature on behalf of the 15th District and Washington state.

My priorities include: strengthening public safety laws to make the Yakima region and our state safer, encouraging water storage, addressing our housing crisis, and providing affordable health care choices. I am also focused on state spending and the operating budget. As consumers deal with unprecedented inflation and high prices of goods and services, the state must set an example of living within its means and create a sustainable spending plan.  

Your feedback and input are important to me as I make decisions critical for the success of our district and state. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or comments you may have. I am honored and privileged to serve and represent the great people of the 15th District.

My Priorities

Working to make Washington affordable

When I came into office in 1999 our state budget was about $20.5 billion. We have more than tripled our spending in about 24 years, and it has more than doubled since Gov. Inslee took office. Despite the record spending and the highest inflation we have seen in decades, no tax relief has been provided in recent sessions. My colleagues and I have advocated for such things as property tax relief, sales tax relief and the Working Families Tax Credit to provide some measure of life affordability.

Prioritizing public safety

Republicans have offered solutions and provided critical votes in addressing the troubling aspects of the policing legislation passed in recent sessions that placed unrealistic standards on law enforcement officials. Reinstating vehicular pursuits with the passage of I-2113 in the 2024 session is an important step to addressing our public safety crisis. However, work remains as Washington state ranks #1 for retail theft, #1 for burglary, #2 for property crime and #3 for motor vehicle theft. Our state also ranks dead last in police officers per capita. We must fix Washington's public safety crisis and make our communities safer.

House Republican solutions to protect our communities

Holding state agencies accountable

The governor and his Washington state agencies must be held accountable for their failures. Whether it is cost overruns at the WSDOT or the Employment Security Department's mishandling of the fraud cases during the pandemic, public trust must be restored by increasing oversight and implementing reforms with the Legislature's input. The executive branch of our government has operated Washington state under one-person rule and under a state of emergency. Lawmakers must have more input as our state government was not intended to operate this way.
