How to make a proposal for a new requirement/law in your state?
If you have an idea of something that should be a requirement in your state, how do you make the proposal/offer to the correct people? I have a good idea that I'd like to put on the table for my state but I've never done anything like that and don't know the steps needed.
What happens exactly? If they actually like the idea, what goes on next?
Thank you so much!
Thanks! I never learned about any of that in school, so you are right - shame on the schools for that! I do find it exciting to do this though. I feel it's worth a try!

1. Look at your state legislature's website.
2. Look at the list of committees.3. Figure out which committee oversees the subject of the law that you want - agriculture, education, transportation, or whatever.http://www.patomalley-consulting.com/committees-ho... Find the name of the committee chair.5. Write a proposal outlining what you want, when you want it, how it will be paid for, and a timetable to implement it, etc.6. Send your proposal to the committee chair AND to your local legislator and state senator.7. THEN start lobbying.http://www.patomalley-consulting.com/lobbying.html... THEN contact your local school board and ask them why they didn't bother to do their damn job and teach you this stuff.https://www.usa.gov/local-governmentsOr you could google your topic and find out if some organization is already working on it.
