The Rich Taylor Report by Sen. Rich Taylor
Session report for week 1.
With the 2013 legislative session now up and running, I want to make sure my constituents in Jefferson, Washington, Henry and Lee counties know what’s happening.
I’ll be sending out regular updates on the key issues we’re addressing from week-to-week in the Senate.
I’ll also be participating in local forums, where we’ll have a change to talk face-to-face. There are several online resources to help you stay informed as well.
I invite you to check out my Senate web page at www.senate.iowa.gov/senator/taylor and encourage you to share this site with others who might be interested in signing up for my newsletter, connecting with me on Facebook or checking out my Senate photos.
At our caucus website, www.senate.iowa.gov/democrats, you’ll find:
• Articles on legislation, current events, grant opportunities and state resources.
• Summaries of bills voted on in Senate committees and in the chamber.
• Social media links to connect with Senate Democrats via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and photos, or our RSS feed.
At www.legis.iowa.gov, the Legislature’s official site, you can watch live debate in the Senate and House, track bills of interest, review what’s happening in legislative committees and even arrange a free tour of the statehouse if you plan to visit.
Most importantly, I want you to know that I am here to listen and represent the people in my district. When you share your concerns and ideas, you’re helping me do my job. I especially look forward to input related to committees I serve on.
This session, I am vice-chair of the Agriculture Committee. I also serve on the Economic Growth, Judiciary, Local Government and Transportation committees, as well as the Justice Systems Budget Subcommittee.
Please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
I also can be reached through the Senate switchboard during the week at 515-281-3371 or at home on weekends at 319-931- 1568.
