Working to reopen Washington’s economy – SB 5114

Dear Neighbor,

Week 2 of our virtual legislative session is in the books. We began the week by honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr with a Senate floor resolution. I spoke on the virtual Senate floor about what he means to this country. You can listen to my remarks here.

On Wednesday, the Senate State Government & Elections Committee heard testimony on Senate Bill 5114 which would move the entire state to “Phase 2” of its lockdown plan. Under “Phase 2”, restaurants, gyms and entertainment venues would be allowed to reopen indoor at 25% capacity. I fully support this bipartisan bill and was happy to see that over 1,500 individuals signed up to testify and comment in support of this legislation.

Please remember that I am here to serve you. Although we may not be able to meet face to face, I encourage you to reach out to my office and to share your thoughts, ideas and concerns on matters of importance to you. And please, if you don’t already, follow me on Facebook. My contact information can be found on the right sidebar. Now, more than ever, it is vital that you are connected with the decisions being made in Olympia. I look forward to hearing from you.
