Media Resources

We work closely with the members of the news media to provide them with the most up-to-date information we have about the actions of the Legislature. Reporters, editors, producers, bloggers are encouraged to use the below resources and to contact our Communications office to get in touch with legislators for interviews.

House and Senate Republicans also hold weekly media availability meetings with members of leadership to update the media and answer questions.
