83rd Legislative Session (2013)
“President Johnson once noted, ‘There are no problems we cannot solve together, and very few that we can solve by ourselves.’ When the Legislature convened for the 83rd Session, it faced the daunting task of tackling the many challenges facing our state. I worked with members on both sides of the aisle to further the interests of our community and our state by authoring and sponsoring many bipartisan bills that prioritized good policy ahead of party politics.
My agenda in 2013 included fighting to restore the dollars that were cut to public education, maintaining local control to city and county governments, easing tax burdens on urban farms and community gardens, protecting workers’ wages, and other important issues. This legislative review highlights some of my more significant legislative successes.”
