Thank you for visiting! Please contact me with any questions.

Welcome to my official legislative website! It’s an honor to represent the 13th District.

The economy is at the top of everyone’s minds right now. It’s important that our state government focus on the creation of jobs in the private sector and encouraging businesses to stay or move to Washington.

We need to ease regulations on employers and provide a continuing labor force for important industries. We need to reduce over regulation, overly restrictive growth management laws, and excessive taxation, especially for working families and small businesses.

Agriculture and water resources are also at the top of my agenda. I’ll continue proposing ways to help our farmers, ranchers and other agricultural producers who contribute in such a large way to our state’s economy. Water access is critical in our state, and I’m working to ensure fair and sustainable water policy.

Our state is facing a public safety emergency with crime at record levels. I want to empower law enforcement to keep our communities safe, give local jurisdictions resources to hire and train police, help those struggling in addiction and fix our broken criminal justice system.

A primary responsibility of state government is providing resources to communities to educate our children. In the 2023 legislative session, I’m closely following developments around special education and the need to better fund programs for these students.

I hope this website will help to inform you of these and other issues affecting our district. Please use the “Contact Me” link at the top of the page to call, write or send me an e-mail. I value your advice and feedback and want to help address your concerns regarding state issues.

Thank you for the honor of representing your interests and ideas in Olympia.

Judy Warnick, State Senator
