February 8, 2017 It has been a busy start to the 2017 legislative session here in Olympia. The pace for me has been extremely fast since day one. We had our first rounds of bills come to the House floor for votes. I had the honor of voting in favor of House Bill 1056. As a 28-year military veteran, I know firsthand how tough deployment is on our families, and on ourselves.
