The very first hurdle for health care bills and amendments is passing them out of their respective Health Care Committees.
If you are a committee member’s constituent, your contacts with your legislator are SUPERSIZED. Your calls, emails, letters and bill comments are vital!
Below, we’ve indicated other important leadership roles and committee assignments such as Ways and Means, Appropriations and the Rules Committees. Those legislators are particularly influential for moving bills through the process to passage.
Fun fact: Constituents who live in 43rd district (Seattle: Cap. Hill/UDist./Madison Pk/Wallingford): You have massive clout because you have 2 legislators serving on the House Health and Wellness Committee: Rep. Nicole Macri the Committee Vice-Chair, and Rep. Frank Chopp who also serves on the Appropriations Committee.
