House District 66

Rep. Sabi Kumar: (R) Chair: Mental Health & Substance Abuse Subcommittee, Member: Finance, Ways, & Means Committee, Health Committee. Chairman Kumar has very serious responsibilities with the opioid and mental health problems plaguing us today. We don't pretend to understand all of the causes or remedies so have not attempted to judge the legislative activities surrounding these issues. If we did, Chairman Kumar would undoubtedly have earned extra leadership points for proposing legislation to deal with those problems. As it is, he co-sponsored 9 of our recommended bills. He is a very nice gentleman and a pleasure to engage.. We look forward to working with him in 2020 and hope to better understand his field of expertise. In 2018: Sponsored no (0) bills scored by TLRC. Co-sponsored twelve (12) bills favored by TLRC. Voted against the Gas Tax. Eloquent and respectful speaker against the Gas Tax and for the Heartbeat Bill. Rep. Sabi "Doc" Kumar is a scholarly, conservative statesman.
