·       LD23 Rep Jay Lawrence: I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy Chanukah. I've been at the legislature almost every day preparing to represent LD 23 and the people of Arizona. I sit in on committee meetings whenever I am invited. Last week it was a joint budget committee meeting and a health committee meeting. There is a form to follow when asking questions of witnesses and addressing the chair.  Legislators/staff went to Yuma last week for an agriculture tour that was a real eye opener. At the border entry at San Luis, we witnessed thousands of farm workers entering this country from Mexico; then boarding buses that take them to and from the fields. We are told that even though they can go further north unimpeded, they don't. They return each evening and report back the next day.  I'll be serving on three committees, Commerce, Health, and Education, where I’ll be serving as Vice-Chairman.  There are challenges for all three in the coming session. I made some promises to voters as I was campaigning - One was try to eliminate Common Core and my bill to try and do that has been written.  The lntroset is now on my desk awaiting signatures from other House members. There are a number of other Jay Lawrence bills in process and I’ve begun the process of reading the bills that other legislators have provided for my signature. I now occupy former Rep Michelle Ugenti's office.  I look forward to your visits and advice. My assistant Kim McHatton can be reach her at the House of Representatives number. Don't forget January 15th is “Visit your Legislator Day” at the Capitol. I'll look forward to seeing many of you there.
