[R74] Your opinions help me better represent you (12/9/2011)

Friday, December 9, 2011

Start Date: 12/9/2011
End Date: 12/9/2011

Every year, before the beginning of the legislative session, members of the General Assembly send out a survey to residents in our districts in order to better gauge your opinions on issues that may come before the legislature in the coming months.  A variety of questions are included that will help me to better represent the people of House District (HD) 74 at the Statehouse and understand the issues that are important to you.

My survey will be mailed out to all households in HD 74, and is also available online. You will find questions asking for your thoughts on topics such as: a statewide smoking ban, local government issues, random drug-testing for state-funded welfare recipients, a Right to Work law in Indiana, and making cold medicines containing pseudoephedrine available by prescription only. Though we have not yet seen actual legislation, which is “under construction” right now within our Legislative Services Agency, we do expect these…and many more…to be considered in January when our legislative session begins.

I have every expectation that this will be a productive session and remain focused on the task of strengthening our communities and ensuring our young people have a strong education, viable careers, and real economic opportunity in our area. One of my top priorities will be to continue to help attract jobs to our state, as well as boost entrepreneurship and small business growth in our Indiana smaller cities, towns and rural areas.

Please take a few moments to answer the brief survey you receive either by mail or on my website at www.in.gov/H74. From there, follow the link on the top right side of the page labeled ‘Click here to take my 2012 Legislative Survey’.

I look forward to reading your responses and encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached by phone at 317-232-9769 or by email at H74@in.gov.
