Legislature introduces online commenting system

Citizens have another way to interact with their legislators thanks to a new online commenting system launched last week.

Instead of having to determine which legislators serve their district and tracking down an email address or phone number, constituents can simply click a “comment on this bill” link on the bill’s webpage. They will be directed to a page where they can input their email and home addresses. The website automatically will determine the constituent’s district and send a message to the corresponding legislators.

Bill information and the new commenting system can be accessed at www.leg.wa.gov.
