Politics & Government - State or Province

Some change should start smaller, moving towards a more perfect society often starts with a local move towards a more perfect union. If you can get the change your state or province needs then you have begun one giant leap towards getting the same changes made on a national level.

The hunting season in Arizona allows unlimited tags with a bag limit of...

Close Jug Handles on Route 1


We, the undersigned, do hereby request that NJ DOT consider closing the jug handles on Route 1 in the Princeton/Plainsboro area. The reopening of the handles has lead to increased traffic on Route 1. We understand and sympathize with those residents affected by the recent closure, however, we argue that many more are affected by the closure than are affected by the opening. Many who sit n traffic on Route 1 are frustrated at the long waits...

Our families and businesses have been hurt by past holdbacks and cuts to Medicaid-funded services. Further cuts will create devastating economic...

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to alter the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them.

Everyone knows that Ethanol is a more reliable and feasible fuel source for vehicles. Even Henry Ford knew it and built the original Model T to run on Ethanol. Henry Ford even fought for Ethanol as a usable fuel source during prohibition. Now every day we get closer and closer to a global crisis because the oil companies spear headed Ford's ideas and made the price of oil drop as to make Ethanol seem like an unrealistic fuel source.

Stop auto insurance companies from using Credit Scores as a basis for insurance rates


I know I'm not the only person tired of having my auto insurance rate based on my credit score. For years the government has allowed insurance companies to use our credit scores as a basis for car insurance. Not only is this insulting (even for someone like myself who has fairly good credit) but it has no basis in the auto insurance realm. Auto insurance should be based primarily on driving record, not excluding tickets removed by those...

We call upon all state legislatures to restore, unconditionally, the right of adopted adults to access their unaltered original birth records.
