State lawmakers send what are called co-sponsorship memos to each other, seeking support for legislation they plan to propose.
Those memos are now available online.
“It’s pretty cool,” state Rep. Ron Miller, R-Jacobus, told YDR political reporter Ed Mahon last week.
Indeed. Any time a state body makes public records more easily accessible gives people the chance to know more about their government and what their representatives are doing.
Mahon wrote a story about what’s in some of the memos.
You can view the memos here. For example, you could see that one legislator (not from York County) wants trained municipal or regional police officers to be able to use radar to catch you speeding. See, that’s good information to know, isn’t it?
