Thursday, July 13, 2017

Hello Friend,

Welcome to my latest e-newsletter! I hope you have been enjoying your summer with family and friends. For me, it has been a great time to get caught up in Lansing and spend more quality time in the district. If I haven’t seen you at an event or coffee hour yet, I hope to later in the summer.

As always, please feel free to contact my office if you have any questions, concerns or ideas about legislation. You can contact me and my staff at (517) 373-0828, by email at DonnaLasinski@house.mi.gov or by visiting my website at RepLasinski.com.

Coffee Hours

Thanks to all those who came to my coffee hours this past week. I am always impressed and grateful when you take time out of your summers to discuss the issues affecting our community and our state!

Please stay tuned for my upcoming coffee hour schedule. If you have suggestions for locations for future events, please contact me and my staff at (517) 373-0828 or DonnaLasinski@house.mi.gov

I am hosting a listening tour stop with the Progressive Women’s Caucus on Wednesday, Aug. 16. Part of a statewide listening tour, please join us and voice your concerns about policies and challenges facing women and families in Michigan. There will also be opportunities to take action on the issues that matter to you.

Legislative Update

Working for HD 52

As mentioned before, the Michigan House of Representatives has a lighter session schedule in the summer to accommodate district plans. We met on Wednesday, July 12, and a list of bills introduced and passed can be found here: http://legislature.mi.gov/doc.aspx?daily

Throughout the summer, my staff and I are still hard at work on the policy issues affecting our community, including broadband access. As always, if you have ideas for legislation or concerns about state policies, please reach out to my staff and me.
