Library levy is needed for local communities
My daughter and two-year old grandson Ari used to go to Seattle regularly to visit the zoo. The current economy has changed that. Now, their destination is the library – for toddler storytimes, children’s books, or free DVDs.

Health reform on a dime
While Washington once again debates reforming our health care reform system, the states have marched on. Washington-based proposals, like those currently before Congress, are too expensive and ignore the fact that most Americans don’t want and are concerned about a big-government takeover of the U.S. health care system.

To stimulate the economy, stop trying to limit driving and start reducing congestion
I’m often asked how other states compare to Washington on transportation policy. This is a reasonable question, because across our state, traffic congestion is growing worse and is expected to double over the next twenty years.
