The 60-day legislative session is underway

2020 legislative session • January 17, 2020 

The Current -- 2017 legislative session

Dear Friend:  

The 60-day legislative session is underway. State lawmakers returned to the Capitol on Monday for opening ceremonies, including a speech from the new Speaker of the House Laurie Jinkins in the House chamber. You can watch my floor speech from that day here.  

On Tuesday, the governor delivered his annual State of the State address to a joint session of the Legislature. Sen. John Braun provided the Republican perspective. I encourage you to watch it, as he offers a clear contrast and compelling vision for our state.

Safe, affordable and accountable

House and Senate Republicans are working closely together on solutions for our state. This includes legislation focused on safety, affordability and accountability. We discussed some of these ideas at a news conference this week. And we will continue to push for them throughout the legislative session. 

You can learn more about House Republican priorities by visiting this web page. I will be sharing more details on proposals in upcoming editions of this communication.

Introducing The Washington State Ledger

I've been asked from time to time, "I never hear from House Republicans." And, "where can I find your information?" 

I'm excited to tell you that our caucus has created a legislative news aggregator that brings together our various communications and other legislative news and views from across the state. It's called The Washington State Ledger. Please consider bookmarking and sharing it with others.  

We created this platform for you. Our goal is to provide new content each weekday. There may be some enhancements and changes to it over time. And we welcome your input on how to make it better. 

Thank you

Thank you for reading this e-mail update and being involved in the legislative process. I appreciate it. Please consider sharing this with your friends and family. They can also sign up for it here.
