If you were unable to attend this informative Day on the Hill, please make use of the documents prepared for this event. They are posted on our website lwvbrookline.org . There is an important list of the bills--on many subjects ranging from human needs to voters' rights, education to the environment, and much more (See the link below for Legislative Priorities). Each bill is described briefly and paired with a list of "talking points," which describe the key reasons LVW supports the bill. These are intended to help you in contacting your legislators about those bills which matter most to you. There is also a directory of all the legislators indicating which related committees they serve on and contact information for all of them.
The legislature has several hundred bills filed each session. Don't let the important issues become buried! Let the folks on the hill hear about your interests and concerns. LVW members have put a good deal of thought and time into considering these bills. Please remember that Day on the Hill is an annual March program. Plan to join us there next year! And in the meantime stay in touch with your legislators. Use these good tools!
