Oughta Be a Law

oughta-be-a-law

Are there challenges in our community or our state that you think could be fixed with a new law?  This is your chance to share your ideas!  In advance of the upcoming legislative session, I'm inviting constituents in the 76th District to participate in my second-annual "Oughta Be A Law" Program. Some of the best laws we've passed through the Legislature began as ideas from people like yourself who care about their community and want to take action to improve it.  

Proposals can be big ideas like a new state agency, or small changes to the law that make a difference in our region – it’s up to you. Complete this form to share your idea!
