2023 Legislative Agenda
Whether you are meeting with your city councilman or your congressperson, you have a message to convey and you want to make the best of the time you are allotted. Whatever it is you want; be it a licensing laws or permitting ordinances, a state law against taxing businesses or a federal law against diverting military funds, you have a voice. And there is nothing sweeter to the ears of your local representative than the voice of a constituent. They do want to meet with you.
Is Your Issue Local, State or Federal?
Determine if your issue is a local, state or national one. If your issue is something that will affect primarily the people in your community, start with your city council person or county commissioner. If your agenda is more of a state or federal concern, contact and meet with your state representative or your congressman.
Contact the office of your representative. For a local issue, call the City Hall or County Commissioner’s office. State legislators will be at the state capitol when the legislation is in session. Senators and Congressmen will be in Washington D.C. during legislative session. Determine the representative’s schedule and how you can fit in a meeting.
