Statement by Senate Majority Leader Andy Billig (D-Spokane) on the appointment of Sen. Steve Hobbs (D-Lake Stevens) to serve as Washington State Secretary of State.

“I want to congratulate Sen. Hobbs on his appointment today and thank him for his long service in the state Senate. He has always been a strong voice in the Legislature and a steadfast champion for our state’s transportation infrastructure, voting rights, reproductive rights, healthcare, and the needs of his district. I look forward to seeing him guide the Secretary of State’s office with the same passion and integrity he brought to the halls of the Senate.”
