How a Bill becomes a Law 

After retiring from a business career in Marketing and Sales in 2002, Mr. Sheehan began working for the Legislature during sessions in the Legislative Information Center. He was hired in 2005 as the Staff Coordinator for the Center. Mr. Sheehan’s vision for the Center is to look for new ways to use technology, people, training, and public education to expand the involvement of the public in the process of understanding and participating to a greater degree in the legislative process. He sees the need for greater support of civic education for our youth, for our expanding immigrant population, and for our adult population as a means for getting broader citizen participation in our democratic form of government.

Mr. Sheehan has B.A. Degree in Political Science from Seattle University and did post graduate work in International Relations at the University of Washington and has an MBA in Marketing and Administration.
