Each legislative session, our elected officials read through and vote on thousands of bills in hopes that some will make it to the governor’s desk and be signed into law. For those of us advocating for bills that promote justice, equity, and care for our neighbors and creation, it can sometimes be difficult to understand the changes proposed by each bill.

Each Issue Fact Sheet will help you understand the basics and articulate the major points when asking your legislators to consider these bills.

See FAN’s Legislative Agenda for bills FAN is supporting this year, and check out our Learn the Basics page in our Advocacy Toolkit to learn more about how to read bills and how a bill becomes a law.
