APRIL 2011

April 3, 2011

In North Carolina our biennial budget is being developed and will be adopted by our elected state officials. At www.ncleg.net, a citizen may keep abreast of all developments regarding legislative activity. Options on this website include audio available for either chamber as well as for some committee meetings; a review of the calendar of meetings and activities; and links to communicate with legislators. The site also provides information on the operations of state government and links to other state government sites. A citizen may also access full text of proposed legislation and information about any member of the legislature. The League of Women Voters supports transparency in government. Please review the efforts of this website to keep citizens informed of North Carolina legislative activity.

April 10, 2011

This is a great time of year to stay in touch with all of the activity occurring in the state legislature. Check the North Carolina legislature’s website, www.ncleg.net for great access to legislative action. This site provides a lot of information. Click on ‘Homework Assistance’ in the right hand column. This provides a great review, even for adults, about how laws are passed and how the legislature operates. In fact, there is a link to a ‘Citizen Guide.’ This link includes descriptions of each branch of state government as well as links to the US House and Senate. In this electronic age, a citizen can stay informed by the click of a button. Transparency and accountability in government only work if citizens take advantage and study the information that is available.

April 17, 2011

On the North Carolina Legislative website, www.ncleg.net, citizens may review the actions of their elected representatives. Unsure or your representative? Click on “Who Represents me?’ in the bar under the page heading. Follow the instructions and you will be able to determine your local Senator and Representative. If you already know your legislators’ names click ‘View Member Info’ in the box at top right on the page then scroll down the list to click on a representative. The link to each elected official provides biographical information as well as a review of legislative activity for that particular official. It is possible to learn how each official has voted as well as review legislation that each official has sponsored or co-sponsored, and to learn to which committees that official has been assigned.

April 24, 2011

Our state legislators are taking advantage of electronic communications to keep voters informed. Three people represent Henderson County in the State legislature. Senator Tom Apodaca, Representative David Guice, and Representative Chuck McGrady. Each of these officials maintains a website: www.senatorapodaca.com; www.davidguice.com; www.chuckmcgrady.com. Both Representative Guice and McGrady send out electronic newsletters to keep voters informed of their activities in Raleigh. If you would like to receive a newsletter, or communicate with a legislator go to the appropriate website, or contact the official at www.ncleg.net. In addition, it is possible at Representative McGrady’s website to opt onto the mailing list for his newsletter. Please take advantage of these transparency opportunities.
