Lichtenegger: How You Can Influence State Legislation

You don’t want to miss this informative July 11 meeting. Ever wonder how you can influence state legislation? At what stages can a bill die? What influence do House Committees have on the passage of legislation? Here’s your opportunity to find the answers! I will host a meeting July 11 at 7 p.m. It will be held at the MU Extension Small Business Development Center, 684 West Jackson Trail in Jackson. It is my desire that my constituents be well informed –not just about politics in general- but how concerns and ideas become bills and subsequently laws. I would like to thank the SEMO Black and Gold Chapter of the MU Alumni Association for sponsoring this meeting.

It’s wonderful to celebrate July 4th and our American freedom, but there are lesser-known stories, such as, who controlled the war funds and how was the Revolutionary War financed? And read here about the Prime Minister of Great Britain who opposed the war against the North American colonists. For more such stories and to view a short video produced by The History Channel link here: The U.S. Declares Independence.

Whatever your plans for this Fourth of July holiday, don’t forget to pray for and honor those in our armed forces who are fighting this very day to secure our Nation from those who seek to annihilate every form of democracy on earth. Fly your flag proudly!

Constituent Corner

During interim is a good time to get familiar with the House of Representative Website

There you will find various information about House activities; a list of famous Missourians; the Capitol Gallery full of photos in and around the Capitol area; and links to the Governor’s website and other State Departments.

Expose yourself to it now and by the time the 2012 Session starts in January you’ll be a pro at finding and tracking any legislation so that you can take an active role in promoting or preventing passage of House Bills.
