Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope you had a wonderful Easter holiday with friends and family.  I know the sunshine and time spent with my family did me a world of good as we enter the last month of the 2013 legislative session.  This week should be an interesting one as we're hearing that the bipartisan Senate Majority Coalition Caucus in the state Senate may be ready to introduce the session's first complete budget proposal.  Until then, here's The Week Ahead.  Let me know if you have questions or concerns, or if you would like to come to Olympia to testify on any of these bills.Rep. Schmick gives a speech on the House floor
