Senator Schoesler on the Issues

Job Creation

Senator Schoesler is committed to enacting policies that allow independent businesses to grow and employ more Washingtonians so they can be prosperous, productive citizens. In order to expand 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 as the leader of Washington State Senate Republicans has earned him the Jim Matson Award from the Association of Washington Business.

Spending and Taxes

In order for our state to operate efficiently, it is important that spending be controlled and as reasonable as possible so that we can ensure financial sustainability and 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 over 160,000 jobs and representing 12% of our economy. A fifth-generation wheat farmer himself, Senator Schoesler recognizes the importance of this industry and works to support policies that allow the state’s growers, farmers, and ranchers to successfully compete.
