Sen. Anthony Cannella Announces 12th District "There Ought to Be a Law" Contest

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today announced his “There Ought to a Be a Law” contest to provide constituents the opportunity to present ideas for new legislation. Senator Cannella will personally sponsor legislation from winning submissions.

“Some of the best ideas we have for legislation have come from members of the community that see the need for a change. For example, this year, we had a bill that came from a suggestion that ended up becoming the first law in the nation to criminalize cyber revenge,” said Senator Cannella. “This contest allows citizens to gain first-hand experience in the law making process and improve California government.”

The deadline for submission is December 20, and the winners will also be invited up to Sacramento to testify at a hearing on their bill.
