Happy New Year and God's blessings to you and yours!  

An important quick note to get folks looking at what is shaping up to be a couple busy months. Our state legislature kicked off Jan. 10, for a total of about 39 days spread out over the next four months. There is a limited window to introduce legislation for the next several weeks.

While your legislators can address issues and problems you may have with state government agencies year-round, we are limited to legislative recourse during session.

I did not seek any partisan caucus leadership election in order to concentrate fully on my duties to all the folks in our district. I have been asked and accepted to take on a lot of work with appointments to the Senate Judiciary, vice chairman of Commerce and Energy, Local Government and Government Operations and Audit committees, with potentially more interim appointments possible.

I currently have several significant bills in research dealing with three major veterans' issues; researching tax exemption for shelterbelts over five acres; researching complaints of excessive state property seizures along ditches of state highways (25, 81, 37, etc); several proposals to address the corruption we have all seen in state government; as well as several other constituent bills.
