CMR for students and families

I am a working mother, wife and city councilwoman. Cathy McMorris Rodgers represents me on many fronts.

She co-sponsored the bill that extended the Federal Perkins Loan program for need-based students. Without programs like this, our son would not be able to afford college in two years. She supported and had language in the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that puts more money in my pocket each month to help provide for my family, expands the child credit and doubles the standard deduction. I’m actually looking forward to filing my 2018 taxes!

As a representative from Eastern Washington, she also understands the local needs for infrastructure projects and has met personally with officials from the city of Liberty Lake to help bring attention to the much needed I-90 improvements between Barker Road and Idaho including improved interchanges. I look forward to working with her on these crucial projects in her next term!
