Citizen Action – How You Can Make a Difference!

 

There are 150 legislators in the Iowa Legislature. Each one will have an important role regarding this legislation and you should be equipped with reaching out to them.

First, focus productive efforts on contacting individual senator and representatives HERE .

Secondly, contact the members of the Health and Human Services Appropriations Subcommittee HERE or the Health Policy Oversight Committee HERE.

If a legislator does not fit either of those criteria, your efforts will not be productive and may potentially backfire. Please trust the system and protocols in place so that each legislator can dedicate the time necessary to hear the opinions of those they represent.

Ways to connect and reach out to your legislator: email, phone call, or request an in-person meeting.
