Welcome to 2015 – and a hundred bills, ALREADY!

Hello readers!

Welcome to the new blog site. There are some new and fun changes this year; most notably, there will be three new voices sounding off about the 2015 legislative session. Meet Tony, Meghan, and Bill, three Dakota Rural Action members from across the state who care about public policy and making sure citizens stay involved. And, Sabrina King, DRA’s lobbyist, will still be reporting from Pierre on a regular basis.

Our podcast, Dakota Rural Voices, is up and going, so be sure to check out the first episode. And, this year, we’ll be live-tweeting important committee hearings so be sure you’re following Dakota Rural Action on Twitter.

While you are getting up and going, here is a bit of light reading: nearly 100 agency bills filed prior to the session’s start! Over the next week we will be writing about a few of these, and we will have our new bill tracker on this site as well.

So, get to reading, and be sure to post your comments and thoughts – join us in sounding off on the 2015 legislative session!
