Senate District 13

Senator Dawn White (R) is a new senator this year after serving many years in the house. She serves as 2nd Vice-Chair, Senate Judiciary Committee and Member, Senate State & Local Government Committee. Senator White sponsored two bills that TLRC recommended: no licensure required for hair braiding and increasing the penalty for child rape from "15 to 60 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000" to "life in prison without the possibility of parole." They passed. She co-sponsored an additional 7 TLRC endorsed bills and was one of the very few dissenting votes on sending the heartbeat bill to summer study. We applaud her strength of character and conviction. She earned a very nice 93% vote score. All told, Senator White is a winner!
