Friends and Neighbors:
The 2015 legislative session begins on Monday, January 12th. I'll need your help to be the most effective advocate for District 17. So please take the time to contact me, come to a forum or office hour, or the New Capitol Tour!
I'll be serving on the Judiciary and Rules, Local Government and Taxation, and State Affairs committees. I'll also be a member of the Joint Legislative Oversight committee and the Joint Millennium Fund committee (tobacco settlement fund administration).
My focus will be on increasing education funding while stalling further tax cuts that siphon money away from education.
While the incentive program that I co-sponsored last year is helping create decent jobs. Idaho must focus on long-term strategies to improve our economy. And again that means improving our K-career education system! There are no shortcuts!
I'll also be working with colleagues to better regulate the e-cigarette and vaping industry. We must insure that Idaho doesn't allow these products to be marketed to children or to provide unsafe products.
If you're interested in any legislative or community issues please feel free to contact me at:
Telephone - 208-332-1411
Representatives Chew, Gannon and I (Team 17) have forged a strong bond and will be working together extensively during the coming months. Together we create powerful representation for the district!
