It’s been about a month since we wrapped up the 2022 legislative session, and a good point to step back and look at the impact this session had on you and your family.

Nowhere was this more evident than in the areas of public safety and affordability. Washington is experiencing a wave of murders, car thefts, and shootings – due in part to the anti-law enforcement agenda adopted by the majority in the 2021 session.

In addition, Washingtonians are facing the highest inflation in four decades, yet, once again, the majority has failed to act, refusing nearly every attempt to provide tax and inflation relief to the public – even though there was a $15 billion surplus!
