Tarr’s Times: Restorative Justice, Food Policy, Thanks for attending Town Hall

Revitalizing Mountain View, Summer Working Group Meetings, and more!

As the House Resources Committee Co-Chair, I helped negotiate the passage of HB 111, the deal to end the failed cash credit program for the oil and gas industry. This saved the state hundreds of millions of dollars that we were able to invest in education and other important programs this year – programs that had been cut severely in our economic crisis.
