Notes 7-20-07

The House honored the late Sen. Jeanne Lucas on Tuesday, remembering her as a lawmaker dedicated to improving education. Lucas, a former teacher and school administrator, died in March at the age of 71. She had served in the Senate since 1993. Sen. Lucas was a champion for environmental justice causes in addition to her leadership on education and poverty related issues. Her family and many of her friends sat in the audience as Lucas' colleagues recalled her humor and the guidance she often provided.

While the days ahead will be hectic and long, I continue to encourage you to contact me regarding your thoughts on legislation being considered by the General Assembly. The process works best when all participants are informed and engaged.
