My 2022 Legislation

STATUS: The House is still in 2022 Special Session I and we are scheduled to reconvene on September 7, 2022.

My Work:

This year I carried 25 bills based on the concerns I heard from constituents. Here are those bills. You can click the link to read more about them and what they sought to accomplish.

Bills Passed Into Law


Bills Passed but Vetoed by Governor


Bills Killed in Committee

My Budget Amendments

These budget amendments would have helped fund my proposed legislation and additional initiatives like those in bold below.  Our budgets are documents about our values and priorities.  Funding for our young people's mental health, eliminating food deserts, helping students with disabilities, assisting gun violence survivors, and investing in community STEM programs would have been crucial. We are still fighting for these priorities. Stay tuned as we continue to discuss the budget in Special Session.
