I am deeply concerned about the decision of the Susan G. Komen Foundation to cut funding of breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood clinics, reportedly due to political pressure from extreme groups.

Today, all Washingtonians mourn the loss of Booth Gardner, an incredible human being and governor. Booth ran for governor saying he wanted to focus on education -- and he meant it. He spent 8 years as governor and the rest of his life fighting for education reform. Booth was a politician with a personal touch, who knew how to make everyone in a crowded room feel special. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Booth Gardner's stewardship and friendship put his stamp on Washington state and we are all the better for it.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected by the Skagit County bridge collapse and to the emergency responders on the scene. We stand ready to help the community and to support the ongoing emergency response efforts.
