Assemblymember Reyes Launches “There Ought to be a Law” Community Program

Monday, October 30, 2017

Sacramento – On Wednesday, Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes (D- San Bernardino) launched a new program, accessible through her website called “There Ought To Be a Law.” Aimed at engaging with the community, the program is designed to help create legislative ideas and fixes to these everyday problems.  The program can be found at https://a47.asmdc.org/there-ought-be-law on Assemblymember Reyes’ website.

“Have you ever experienced something that made you say “there ought to be a law for that”? We want to connect with everyone in the district who’s ever felt that way and hear their ideas,” said Assemblymember Reyes. “I think the most useful laws all start with the people who have experienced a challenge or obstacle.”

The website form asks users to provide background to a problem they’ve experienced in addition to what they think a possible solution may be along with any research they have done on the topic.  The background information doesn’t need to be lengthy but should give a clear outline of the problem and proposed solution.


Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes represents Assembly District 47 which includes the cities of Fontana, Rialto, Colton, Grand Terrace, San Bernardino and the unincorporated areas of Muscoy and Bloomington.
