On March 24th, the House of Representatives reached their third reading deadline. I have been working hard the past few months to best represent the district, and I am proud to say I have had over fifty bills I sponsored or co-sponsored that passed through this deadline. The bills focused on a myriad of issues such as women’s issues, higher education, elder abuse, and first responder support.
