There Oughta be a Law

There Oughta Be a Law


You’re invited to participate in Assemblymember Haney’s "There Oughta Be A Law." This program offers you the opportunity to propose new state legislation that will better the lives of 38.9 million Californians.

Why Your Ideas Matter to Us

San Francisco was one of the first cities in the country to allow residents to directly vote on laws, making voter engagement and participation a core aspect of being a San Franciscan. As your newly elected Assemblymember, I am committed to bringing the voices, comments, and concerns of his constituents to the Capitol.

Send Us Your Ideas by January 1st 2023

Proposals can vary from local community improvements, statewide reform, entirely new policies, or revisions to existing laws. To apply, simply fill out the form below and submit your proposals by January 1st, 2023. This contest is open to all AD 17 residents and we especially encourage students to apply.

If Selected, Visit us in the Capitol!

Contest winners are invited to Sacramento for a tour of the State Capitol and will have an opportunity to testify on behalf of their bill at a formal hearing. But the real prize is knowing that your idea has the potential of becoming law across California!
