The first week of the session has been very eventful. We started Monday morning with a beautiful musical number performed by former members of the House. Then we quickly got down to business, passing four education codification bills that removed old language and clarified existing education codes.
This year I am serving on the Executive Office and Criminal Justice Appropriations Committee. We spent time this week looking at budgets, hoping to find areas we can cut costs and eliminate wasteful spending. The hope is that we can save tax payers several million dollars in the coming years.
I am serving on the Political Subdivisions Committee again this year. A few of the bills that came before us this week include:
I am excited for the chance to serve as vice chair of the Transportation Committee this year. Our first week saw a LOT of bills on seat belt laws, I’m sure there will be more to come before the session ends.
There were a few bills worth noting that passed the house this week:
Now for the fun stuff. I had the opportunity to visit with students from Ecker Middle School on Wednesday morning. One of my favorite parts of this gig is getting to know students and people from our district. I love the opportunity to visit and answer any questions they may have. If you’re ever at the Capitol, please stop and see me.
As always, I am so grateful to the voters of District 53 for giving me the opportunity to serve as their representative. I hope in November, you will give me the chance to serve once again. If you have questions, comments or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
