“The power under the constitution will always be in the people. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can and undoubtedly will, be recalled.”

~ George Washington (1787)

A new feature for communicating with your state representatives

From the Washington State Legislature web site:
Pilot Project for Commenting on Bills Online. E-Comments is a feature the Legislature is testing during the 2013 Session. Clicking the button at the top of the bill history page allows you to send comments on that bill to the legislators who represent your district. The first time you comment you will be asked to set up an account with your e-mail address and a password of your choice.
