For the last 23 years, this has been Senator Kevin Miller's home away from home. But, after this year that won't be the case.
"It's been an honor being here," Senator Kevin Miller says of the General Assembly.
After four years in the House and 19 in the Senate, Miller will step down after this year. As he prepares to leave, he remembers his career.
"I introduced and they passed a couple of bills to prevent fraud in terms of Medicaid, transfer of assets from people so they could qualify for Medicaid," explains Miller.
But, in 23 years you can't have some wins without some losses.
Miller says, "What I feel most disappointed about is the inability to make change to our tax code. Over the years, not just recently."
While he's look forward to a life after politics, Miller still has some things he'd like to accomplish while he's in office.
"If we put an inflation trigger to adjust each year for inflation, we would be getting 400-million dollars more in motor fuel tax," Miller carefully explains.
He hopes he's leaving the Valley a little better than he found it.
