On the Armed Services Committee, Rick represents the interests of Naval Station Everett and Naval Air Station Whidbey and works for the military families who call Western Washington their home.

Rick is the first Member of Congress from western Washington state in over half a century to serve on the Agriculture Committee. On the committee Rick provides a strong voice for Northwest farmers. Recently, he was able to provide emergency relief for raspberry growers and continues to support our family farms.
