Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Now that the original committee cutoff has passed, we will begin floor action this week.  My day starts with early morning appointments in the office and I move over to the Legislative Building each day at 10:00 a.m.   The day is scheduled with no breaks or end time for each evening.  There is an on-going floor calendar, but we do not know which bills will be called up on the floor for final passage until we receive a “run” list from the majority.

There are a few morning committee meeting scheduled this week.  Here's the Week Ahead.  As always, let my office know if you'd like to visit Olympia to testify in committee.
