As the 63rd Regular Session of the Legislature convened this week, Sen. Mark Mullet, D- Issaquah, issued the following statement on his top legislative priority:

“The clock is ticking — we have less than 60 days to get our work done and accomplish our goals for the session. As a legislature, we have many important issues to discuss and work through, including, a transportation package that helps reduce traffic congestion and makes the way we move people and freight more efficient and effective. We also need to fully fund all-day kindergarten and reduce class sizes in K-12 education.

“My top priority this session is to bring transparency to our health care system. It’s an issue I worked on last session and one that I’m committed to working on and passing this session. I want to make it easier for Washington residents to find medical providers who are high in quality and low in cost. We will do this by making our current confusing healthcare pricing system easier to access and navigate.”

Mullet will continue to serve on the Senate Early Learning & K-12 Education, Transportation and Financial Institutions, Housing & Insurance Committees. Mullet has also been appointed to a new leadership position within the Democratic Caucus as vice caucus chair.
