Sen. Emily Randall serves the 26th District in Washington and was elected to the State Senate in November 2018. In 2019, she sponsored the companion bills to HB 1706 which worked towards eliminating sub-minimum wages for people with disabilities and HB 1199 that allows working individuals with disabilities to work and earn more money while keeping their benefits. She received the Outstanding Legislator Award from the Community Employment Alliance for her efforts this session.
Emily has dedicated herself to expanding education opportunities and access to affordable health care for women, children, LGBTQ folks and people with disabilities around the country. This cause is personal for her: Emily’s sister Olivia was born with severe developmental and physical disabilities, and it was their family’s access to Medicaid that made it possible for Olivia to live a happy life in their family home for 19 years. Emily believes that all families should have access to the health care they need to keep their families together, and no one should be at risk of bankruptcy because of their health care needs. She is proud to serve her community in the state Senate and to put people first.
