Senate District 25

Senator Roberts: (R) Chair, Senate Government Operations Committee, Member, Senate Judiciary Committee. Senator Roberts is a bit of sunshine in an otherwise mostly-cloudy lot. He sponsored 2 bills favored and scored by TLRC and one passed, holding the Economic and Community Development Dept. accountable. He co-sponsored an additional 5 of our recommendations. We were disappointed with the overall performance of the senate this year, derailing 7 of our preferred bills at the last stage, after passing the house and through committees in the senate. For the most part, Senator Roberts was not a part of this betrayal.
