Washington State House District 4 Pos. 2

During legislative sessions, the Legislature is called upon to: enact or reject legislation affecting public policy in the state; provide for the levy and collection of taxes and other revenue to support state government and assist local government; and appropriate funds for these purposes. The House also has the exclusive power to bring impeachment proceedings. Although laws are enacted only when the Legislature is convened in formal session, policy issues and the general operation of state and local government are under continuous review by legislators serving on permanent and interim study committees.

Allow more competition
Lower taxes
No. I think the amount of man-made green houses gases is so minute it has very little effect.
I think most of our environmental challenges are cleanup and sanitation.
I would complete the Columbia Basin Project.
Cut regulations back.
I think we could start by experimenting in smaller races until we had a good system that was transparent and had integrity.

I believe we need to allow health insurance companies to operate across state lines and with more products to offer to customers. I also believe we need more transparency in pricing so customers know before they go how much it will cost them and if they can find a service at a better price.
We must repeal the capital gains tax to start. Also, I am working with local leaders on a bill that would exempt the first $250,000 of a personal resident to help lower income citizens remain in their homes.
According to a recent email I received we will need 160 mega watts to power electric cars by 2045. That would require new infrastructure in every neighborhood to carry that much electricity to our homes. I believe we need to make solar roofing as affordable as a roof replacement so every home in Washington can afford solar to charge them. Driving an electric car is not the answer unless it can be charged by renewable energy.
I would like to see more investment in research. We must have better batteries that last longer and do not require precious metals from countries that use child labor to mine them.
I will fight to get hydro power listed as clean renewable energy and protect the dams we have. I also believe that every dam should have a fish ladder system.
I would like to see less reliance on fertilizer purchased from over-seas and a protected supply chain to bring their goods to market.
I oppose it. I believe people will not understand the outcome.
