Be sure to contact your legislators before Lobby Day to make an appointment to meet with them between 11:15-12(Click here for contact info.) Your legislator may be in committee that day, that’s ok. Come anyway! Tell them you will be at the Capitol and that you hope you will see them at lunch between 12:00-2:00.
Go early to get parking if you are driving. Have a cup of coffee in the LOB cafeteria before signing in at 10am. Go to your meeting with your legislator between 11:15-12. We will provide talking points and a leave behind note. Come back to the Old Judiciary for lunch at noon and invite your legislator to come with you.
