Legislative contact info 2017
IMPORTANT! Public employees should NOT use work computers, phones, fax machines, or other work property to contact legislators
Use the legislative e-mail system. Quick and easy. Messages are printed and delivered to legislators several times a day. You can e-mail an individual legislator or an entire committee. [NOTE: As of Nov. 15, 2016, the legislative e-mail system is not yet available. It will be soon.]
Keep your e-mails brief! That's the best way to make sure they get read.
Call 406-444-4800 to leave a message for up to 5 legislators or all members of a committee. You'll be asked for your name, home address, phone number, and a brief message.

TIPS for contacting legislators:
Address your letter or e-mail to a specific legislator.
Be sure to state in the opening sentence your position "for" or "against" a bill. THEN give the reasons.
Include the number and title of the bill you are concerned about.
Include your name and home address.
Include your name, address, and a little about who you are (for example, where you work or what school you attend).
Keep it brief & polite.
THANK legislators for considering your view.
Proofread carefully in all written correspondence!
