Response to governor's State of the State
On Jan. 13, I was honored to be chosen to deliver the response to Gov. Jay Inslee's annual State of the State speech.
The issues ahead
As the session progresses, I will keep you updated on the issues and legislation we consider. Key issues will include:
- State Budget: With $3 billion more in revenues since the last budget cycle, we are in good shape to forge a budget that provides for essential services, including for the most vulnerable, and that lives within our means.
- K-12 Education: We must fulfill our constitutional duty to provide for the education of all our state's children. This session will see us building on the gains of the last two years, working collaboratively to build a better school system for every student.
- Energy and the Environment: Washington state is a leader in environmental stewardship. My colleagues and I are working on developing innovative policies, and we will share updates as we progress.
- Job opportunities: The foundation of a strong, vibrant economy is good, middle-class jobs, particularly in the production sector, where we manufacture, build, grow and process goods. I am strongly committed to policies that provide more opportunities for the middle class and those who are struggling, so that they too can contribute to and benefit from a robust economy.
