Committee assignments

Fleming served on the following committees while a member of the House.


Fleming provided answers to the Arizona State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test. The test informs voters how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected. When asked her legislative priorities she responded:

  • Education. By investing in a quality education system, we will prepare our children to work in high paying fields and attract businesses that need an educated workforce.
  • Healthcare. All Arizonans deserve access to quality, affordable medical care, and prescription drugs at a cost that does not send families into poverty and bankruptcy. Funding programs like Arizona's Healthcare Group for our small businesses is an important step in the right direction.
  • Quality of Life. Arizonans deserve policies that promote effective health and human services for all citizens, while protecting and sustaining our rural environment.[2]

Fleming's sponsored bills include:

  • HB 2217 - lobbyists; gift ban
  • HB 2219 - legislators; disclosure of interest
