JOBS & ECONOMY

Protecting existing jobs and promoting a business friendly environment to create new ones is a top priority of mine.

Sensible solutions for the economy:

We all know that a healthy economy in our state depends on a vibrant job market. Washington’s burdensome taxes and regulations can get in the way of job creation, and all too often cause our employers to just hold on when they would rather be expanding. We need to look ahead and make Washington the best place in the World to locate a business for success.

Fostering a competitive economic climate that retains and attracts employers is critical. I will remain focused on stabilizing our state economy and putting our people back to work. This means ensuring businesses stay in Washington, through free market principles. We must work to preserve every job in the state by supporting policies that help employers and opposing policies that would kill jobs.

Legislation that I consider should be able to answer the question: Will it create private-sector jobs or will it hurt them? Everyone wants quality schools, safe communities and to take care of our most vulnerable citizens. A stronger economy is how we pay for these things. I am committed to removing the barriers and complex government red tape, thereby making Washington State attractive to companies all over the world.

Washington must be more conducive to job growth and opportunity. The proposals I support will help families prosper and improve our state's economic health. When businesses are doing well, people are working and revenue is generated to pay for public safety, schools and other important services.

GOALS to stimulate the economy, and job creation:
