The 3rd District ranks last in household income of all 49 legislative districts in the state. We need good, living-wage jobs that allow people to work with dignity and support their families."
Protection of our Natural Resources
- Excerpt:"I was proud to be the prime sponsor of HB 1489, which will improve water quality in the Spokane River and in waterways all over the state."

- Excerpt:"A focus on wellness has to be at the center of any successful health care system. Our country's obesity epidemic is a direct result of inactivity and poor nutrition. Improved school nutrition and a transportation system that accommodates walking and biking are two key elements to making our community healthier and, as a result, lowering health care costs for all of us."

The Freedom Foundation releases its Big Spender List annually. The Institute ranks all Washington legislators based on their total proposed taxes and fees. To find each legislator’s total, the Institute adds up the 10-year tax and fee increases or decreases, as estimated by Washington’s Office of Financial Management, of all bills sponsored or co-sponsored by that legislator. 
Billig proposed a 10-year increase in state taxes and fees of $1.33 billion, the 41st highest amount of proposed new taxes and fees of the 93 Washington state representatives on the Freedom Foundation’s 2012 Big Spender List.
