State Senator Melissa Hurtado (D-Sanger), who also represents Lemoore, announced this week that she is inviting residents of Senate District 14 (which includes communities in Kings, Fresno, Kern, and Tulare Counties) to submit their ideas for state legislation or budget requests.

Hurtado's staff will vet proposed concepts before the senator personally reviews them. Senator Hurtado’s office may submit qualifying ideas as legislation for consideration in the Legislature.

“Residents of the 14th Senate District face unique challenges that are often overlooked by Sacramento and California’s urban areas,” said Hurtado. “I encourage everyone in Senate District 14 to submit their ideas on how we can improve the safety, health, and wellbeing of our community.”

Senator Hurtado encourages anyone who has ever said to themselves, "there is a better way to do this" or "I think I can fix that" to participate with an idea. This process is also a unique opportunity for anyone who has a suggestion to eliminate an unnecessary law or regulation.

While Senator Hurtado’s office will consider all local bill ideas, the Senator urges constituents to use the form to submit their entries by Friday, January 7, 2022. The submission form includes typical questions that are asked about potential laws during the legislative process so that residents can make the strongest arguments possible for their bill ideas or budget requests.
