What is the Washington House Republican Caucus?

Our caucus is comprised of 41 Republican state representatives in the Washington State House of Representatives. There are four main caucuses in the Washington State Legislature: House Republicans, House Democrats, Senate Republicans and Senate Democrats.

As a caucus, we meet regularly throughout the legislative session to discuss ideas and legislation. As a group, we are focused on the priorities of accountable government, strong communities and affordable living. However, we are independently elected state representatives with various backgrounds and experiences. Our views are shaped by our personal values and the needs of the people and communities we represent. We welcome your involvement in the legislative process and encourage you to contact us with your thoughts and ideas.
