Senator Brown has been a vocal advocate for employers and the Senate’s leading voice for regulatory reform, working tirelessly to make it easier for entrepreneurs and small-business owners to grow, expand and hire more workers. Previously, she introduced the Senate version of a bill that increased the transparency and predictability in permitting which received broad bipartisan support (the House version passed and became law).
In 2019, Senator Brown will serve on the following committees: Higher Education & Workforce Development; Energy, Environment and Ways & Means (assistant ranking member for the operating budget).
