News and Events

Happy New Year! May each of you have a blessed and prosperous 2015. The 2015 session of the General Assembly convenes on January 14th. This will be the 45 day session, or "short" session. Expect legislation focusing on redistricting, voting, Medicaid expansion, K-12 and other education reform measures, marriage equality, medicinal marijuana, and a variety of other issues. Also on the table is ethics reform.

This is also an election year for all 140 members of the legislature. Thus, one can expect quite a bit of grandstanding and brochure issues being discussed in committees and on the floor. Maybe in the midst of it all, real issues and laws will be discussed and passed.

Please visit the Capitol during session or contact me with questions or concerns.
