Senator Schoesler on the Issues

Job Creation

Senator Schoesler has committed to changing the state of unemployment in Washington by pushing for strategies that allow independent businesses to grow and thus allow more Washingtonians to get back to work. In order to create economic opportunities for these businesses, Senator Schoesler recognizes the importance of supporting sensible policies and opposing those that make it more costly for independent employers to successfully compete and provide jobs.

Senator Schoesler’s continued support for small business has earned him a 100 percent voting record for policies that support and defend small, independent businesses in the Legislatures 2011-12 session.

Spending and Taxes

In order for our state to operate efficiently, it is important that spending be as reasonable as possible so that we can ensure financial stability. By controlling the size of government we can continue to offer necessary services with existing revenues without the need to impose new taxes on our citizens and businesses.

Sensible Agricultural Policies

The agricultural industry is of great importance to the state of Washington, providing over160,000 jobs and representing 12% of our economy. A fifth-generation wheat farmer himself, Senator Schoesler recognizes the importance of this business and works to support policies that allow the state’s growers, farmers and ranchers to successfully compete.
