Elected and Government Officials

Know Your Elected Officials

Your elected state and federal representatives and senators are the individuals directly responsible for the drafting and enacting into law all environmental legislation.  The executive branch of government, from mayor to governor to president, is directly responsible for the policy and enforcement of environmental legislation.  Various agencies work to carry out policies which perform the day-to-day objectives of the enacted legislation.  Representatives and senators need to know what issues are important to you and should be notified when you object to or support their actions.
