State Rep. Marvin Vandenberg, D-Coeur d’Alene, has filed for reelection.
Vandenberg, 69, has served four terms in the House and also earlier served as a representative from Boundary County for five terms in the 1950s.
“My record should speak for itself,” Vandenberg said. “I’ve been interested in people issues, and will further that interest if I’m re-elected.”
This past session, Vandenberg successfully pushed bills requiring drinking water systems to notify customers if their water is polluted, and clarifying that a donor designation on a driver’s license is sufficient consent for organ donations to occur. Vandenberg said that law will eliminate delays that sometimes occur in seeking consent from next of kin, which can cause cause the opportunity for organ donation to be lost.
Vandenberg serves on the Human Resources, State Affairs and Transportation and Defense committees in the House. , DataTimes
