It seems like last year’s presidential election spurred an increase in political engagement. I also noticed due to my experience as a political reporter in Sacramento, I tend to be a little more up to date on pending state legislation than my peers. This blog is my attempt to bridge that gap.

I aim to post about two pieces of pending legislation each week–explaining their relevance in your daily life and what political representatives you should call if you want to express your opinion. You can also follow me on Medium at @alexleedsmatthews, where I repost all material from this blog. Tips or bills to cover? Email me at alexleedsmatthews@gmail.com or tweet @alexleeds891.
