Legislative Highlights

I Have a Proven Track Record of Getting Things Done!
 
Despite the pandemic hampering the legislative process, the 130th Legislature considered more than 2000 bills over the two sessions between 2021 and 2022. Aided by covid funding from the federal government we were able to begin to address many outstanding needs. 
           
Here's just a sample of some of the enacted bills during the session that I either sponsored, cosponsored or supported.
