Schwartz is one of the members of a bipartisan group organized by the National Conference of Legislatures called the Task Force on Federal Deficit Reduction (TFFDR). Consisting of 23 state lawmakers from 17 states, the group went to Capitol Hill on September 21, 2011 to urge the Congressional Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction to cut the nation's debt but not impose severe budget cuts on the states.
TFFDR urged the Committee to consider new revenue as a possibility, instead of just focusing on budget cuts as House Speaker John Boehner has proposed. The group specifically proposed passage of the "Main Street Fairness Act," which would allow states to tax online retailers.
Schwartz has not sponsored any major legislation.
Schwartz won re-election in the 2012 election for Kansas House of Representatives District 106. She defeated District 109 incumbent Clay Aurand in the August 7 Republican primary and defeated Nick Levendofsky (D) in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
