Bill Barrage

So many bills to look over and debate and so little time…with the state legislature in full swing now, there are all kinds of issues on the front burner, such as: the gas cap, harsher penalties for drivers who ignore recently-enacted pedestrian crosswalk legislation, more restrictive smoking bans, harsher penalties for uninsured drivers, arsonists, and internet sexual predators.


Your job is to know what's going on simply by checking the legislative agenda.  Forewarned is forearmed, and if our legislators truly represent their constituents, now is the time to contact them about how you feel about these and other important pending bills.  After all, it's too late to question things once the bills are passed and signed.


So rather than wait to debate on what was done or not done in the legislature, a consistent local pastime, take the time now to call, e-mail, or write to your legislators on any issue that really matters to you.  Act now; don't just think about it…
