COLFAX — In an interview with 9th Legislative District Representative Joe Schmick (R), he spoke on several different topics that the state legislature would be addressing in the next session.
In terms of Gov. Jay Inslee’s mandates Schmick stated that it was an overstep on the Governor’s part, stating that when he voted for emergency powers he had never thought about a virus, “We thought earthquake, tsunami, fire, flood, that type of thing,” he said. He further stated that it needs to be changed, “we need to put the legislature back involved with the process,” he added.
