Know your Legislator! The Arizona Legislature is in session every year beginning in January and lasting around 100 days. You can use the above links to look up your legislators and contact them by phone or email. During session, all committee meetings and floor sessions are videotaped. When controversial bills are being debated, the House and Senate videos are compelling. It is definitely TV worth watching.
Often bills passed by the Legislature impact our lives more directly than those passed by the Congress. Lately, in terms of efficiency and getting things done, the Arizona Legislature looks like a well-oiled (although extremely red) machine when compared to Congress.
