Since taking office, I have focused on securing critical investments for our state while working to reduce wasteful spending. I sponsored legislation that’s now law to save millions of federal dollars by closing expired grant accounts and bolster oversight of government programs.
Lawmakers hit the ground running when they convene the Second Session of the 106th Legislature next month. They’ll have 80-some bills left over on first round debate from last session to deal with immediately.
Q: I always hear “peace on earth” this time of year, but I’m beginning to wonder if that’s even possible — there’s so much conflict in our world. I want to teach my children (and learn myself) to be kind and sensitive to others.
