Dear Mr. Margolin:


I wanted to let you know that I am in receipt of your letter dated 12/3/12, regarding the Open Meeting Laws. Sorry it took so long to get back to you but besides the holidays, I recently went through some surgery that put me out of commission for a while.


I can see by your letter that you have pursued this issue as far as you can go as a citizen and I applaud you for your involvement. However, as I'm sure an involved citizen like yourself is aware, each Legislator only gets a finite number of Bill Draft Request's each session and those BDR's are required to be presented by 12-10-12 for consideration and drafting. While we can submit one more by 2-11-13, all my BDR's, including the last one, are spoken for.


If this issue continues to present itself, I would like you to contact me again sometime before the next session and I will research it and possibly request a change in the law. No guarantees, as I always research a problem

completely before committing, but I will look into it.
