Report From Informed Citizen Workshop… Pictures

I just got back from the “Informed Citizen Workshop” that was presented by the State Legislatures Public Access Room.

About 13 – 15 people were in attendance.

It was a pleasure to see someone from the Public Access Room that I had worked with previously at the Legislature, Ms. Suzanne Marinelli.

Most of the information at the meeting was about how to read the legislatures website.

Something that struck me… was that 92% of the bills that are introduced to the legislature, end up failing.

A key phrase that Ms. Marinelli emphasized, was that “We are all Lobbyist.”  Another thing she mentioned, was that the Representatives themselved don’t write the bills… they only introduce them most of the time on behalf of others.
