Valentine’s Challenge #9: Be Informed About What’s Going on in the 2012 Legislative Session RIGHT NOW (and Add Your Voice)

In 2012, Oregon has a very brief, one-month long (February) legislative session during which matters of enormous importance are being decided.  Here are some easy steps to get informed:

 

  • To get a general map of what has happened so far, go here.
  • For bills that have been introduced related in some way to education, click here. 
  • Click here to find out how the representative/senator in your neighborhood have voted.  And try to think back to whether or not you voted them in…and keep their votes in mind when they come up for re-election!
  • Once you know who your neighborhood representatives are and which bills you’re interested in, write them a letter (handwritten usually gets a fast response) or email to voice your thoughts.  You would be surprised…you will likely get a quick response and could even start an ongoing dialogue with someone who has a bit more power in the big picture!
