Contacting Your Legislators

Getting Your Opinions to Your Legislators

Do you want to send a message to your Senator or Representative? Call our HOTLINE at 1-800-562-6000 (TTY for Hearing Impaired 1-800-635-9993). Callers to the Hotline can leave a brief message for their district legislators or for the Governor or Lt. Governor on issues of concern or on questions they may have about bills or laws. These messages are forwarded electronically to the appropriate individuals. When leaving a message with the Hotline, please be prepared to give your name and street address. For non-English speaking callers we offer interpreter services for many languages. 

The Hotline staff will also fulfill requests for bills and other legislative documents and can answer questions about meeting times and places, pending legislation and the legislative process.   

During the Legislative session, the Hotline is open from 8AM to 8PM Monday through Friday and from 9AM to 1PM on Saturday.  

When the Legislature is not in session the Hotline is open from 8AM to Noon and from 1PM to 4:30PM Monday through Friday.

If you prefer e-mail, you may use the website's e-mail forms to send messages to your legislators at any time. From the
