This week, while things worked themselves into a frenzy at the State Capitol in advance of the last week of session, we decided to take a step back and remind ourselves about why we do what we do.
Why do we focus on providing you information about the Legislative Hubbub? Why do you follow along each week?
We want to share with you why we do this work at the Hub - and we want to know from you what are the things you care about most.
We've also got information on some of the bills we cared about that survived Crossover Day.
So this week, we're hoping the Legislative Hubbub can be the start of a conversation with you. We hope you'll talk back to us!
It's Your Time to Talk - What Issues Matter to You?
This time of the year, the rhetoric and speech-making by politicians and the media drowns out what we think is the most important voice in state politics - yours.
Here at the Hub we think it is crucial that new state legislation comes from the hopes, ambitions and concerns of the people that live here.
But, in order for those hopes, ambitions and concerns to make their way to the State Capitol, we need to know what they are.
