Davisson: Getting involved this Legislative Session

Posted by: Lindsay Devlin  | Saturday, January 9, 2016

The 2016 legislative session is in full swing, and it is a privilege to once again represent our community at the Statehouse. Over the next nine weeks, policymakers will focus on providing innovative and responsible solutions to the issues facing our state.

Just as the citizens of Indiana rely on their representatives to keep them informed, representatives rely on constituents to provide input to help guide legislative decisions. Keeping this in mind, I encourage Hoosiers to get involved this session and strive to make a difference in their community and state.

There are several channels through which opinions and information can be shared with me. I recently sent a constituent survey in the mail. Please fill out the survey and mail it back to my office, or if it is more convenient, complete it online at www.in.gov/h73. It is important that I get as much feedback as possible, and I assure you that your thoughts are taken seriously.

I receive phone calls, emails and letters from constituents of House District 73 daily on a variety of issues, including how to apply for unemployment benefits, road conditions and questions about state agencies. Finding ways to assist you is extremely important to me and I consider it a top priority to help you navigate state government. Please reach out to my office directly at 317-232-9753 or email h73@iga.in.gov with any issues. My office is eager to help.

You can also sign up to receive my electronic newsletter on my website. By subscribing, you can learn more about my legislation, stay up to date on the General Assembly and receive community information. Visit www.in.gov/h73 to sign up.

The House Page Program is a way for students aged 13 to 18 to get involved in the legislative process. House pages visit the Statehouse and contribute to a full day of legislative activity. They witness the legislative process firsthand, and interact with state officials and their staff. More information on the Page Program and the application process can be found online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com and clicking “Student Opportunities.”

This legislative session will be an exciting opportunity for Hoosiers to make a difference, and I encourage you to interact with me as we work together to accomplish our goals.
