Media Resources

We work closely with members of the media to provide them the most up-to-date information we have about the actions of the Legislature. Reporters, editors, producers, and 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.

Communications staff contacts

Please contact our staff below to get in contact with the representatives for which they write. General caucus positions and questions should be directed to John Handy.
