2007 Legislative Session starts today

I wanted to give a couple of important items regarding the session.

To reach members of the Mississippi House in session: (601) 359-3770. To send a fax, (601) 359-3728.

To reach members of the Mississippi Senate in session: (601)359-3770. To send a fax, (601) 359-3935.

Please be nice to the ladies who answer the phones, I personally know a couple of them from an internship I had at the capitol a few years ago and they put up with a lot of crap from a lot of rude people who should know that there is nothing the secretarial staff can do but pass along the message.

Also if you have any ideas for proposed legislation get it on it, NOW. Deadlines for dropping bills are early every year except the first after an election (next year). I believe the deadline is in the middle of January. If you want to be an actual part of the process then go with a good idea, written out, preferably in bill format that way they can just send it to the committee attorney to make sure it is correctly formatted to be dropped in the box.
