It is imperative that every citizen be informed. We must find both the time and the energy to stay abreast of what our elected officials are doing to (and for) the populace. We relinquish our responsibility to elected officials to represent us at the local, the State and the National level, however; this does not absolve us of our responsibility to be knowledgeable of what they are doing in our stead.
To assist you in staying abreast of what is going on we have several services at our disposal to make this a simple process for you, the voter.
Kansas Votes. Its purpose is to inform citizens, community leaders, business people, media, and public officials about legislation that affects their families, schools, jobs and communities. Their site empowers citizens to take a more active part in the democratic process, and hold their elected representatives accountable.

Further details about the fiscal impact of proposed legislation can be found in their Fiscal Note, which is prepared for each bill before Congress and is available on their website.
Phone Applications. Most of us have access to, or use "smart phone" technogy, such as I-phones, BlackBerrys, Droids, etc. These phones allow you to down-load programs that provide up-to-the-minute information on legislative issues. two very useful applications are:
