Granicus: Use your voice

Sharing your thoughts and suggestions on pending legislation just got a little easier.
The Legislature is testing a new online comment program for bills under consideration in the House and Senate. The tool is called Granicus.
With a handful of keystrokes and a few mouse clicks, Washington residents can share their opinions on specific bills being debated by the Legislature.
Residents can continue using the traditional methods- meet with their legislators, call their offices, send them emails, or call the toll-free Legislative Hotline (1-800-562-6000).
Your comments will only be visible to legislators and legislative staff. Granicus will ask for your home address so it can determine your legislative district. Your personal information will never be given to third parties for commercial purposes.
Give it a shot and let us know what you think on Facebook or Twitter
