Happy New Year from the Washington state House Democrats. A new year means a new legislative session, and a new season of "Capitol Ideas." This year's season premiere features Rep. Melanie Morgan, a first-term lawmaker from Parkland in Washington's 29th district.
Democratic state Rep. Melanie Morgan visits "Capitol Ideas" in this first episode of 2020 and the first of the current legislative session. Morgan, who was recently elected by her fellow Democrats to serve as deputy majority floor leader in the House, talks about rental reforms, school nutrition, the push to establish a new Office of Equity in Washington, and her efforts to designate an official state dinosaur.
