It’s been just over a week since the 2021 Legislative Session concluded, and many are saying it was historic. We passed landmark legislation, including the Climate Commitment Act, the low carbon fuel standard, childcare for working families, police accountability, and a capital gains tax on extraordinary profits.
Democrats have been fighting for some of these laws for decades, and this year, we got it done!
I want to take a moment to reflect on all we achieved in the 105-day session and make sure I don’t forget to thank those who helped make all of this happen.
Your support made it possible. You put your trust in me to represent the progressive values of Washington’s 36th legislative district, and it has been an honor to do just that.
My most significant moments of pride included serving as Vice Chair of the House Labor Committee where I stood up for working people and passed legislation to protect temporary workers and expand Washington’s Paid Family and Medical Leave program. It was fighting to curb carbon emissions and reduce plastic pollution as a member of the Environment and Energy Committee, and speaking in support of affordable childcare as the mom of George and Eleanor on the House floor.
Thank you again for being part of this incredible journey with me. Together we made remarkable progress for economic recovery, COVID relief, racial justice, climate change and working families in Washington state.
I have no doubt that we will celebrate even more victories in the years to come.
