An Expedition to the Capitol: Working with Lawmakers to Ensure Legislation Incorporates the Geoscience Perspective

Each year, state legislators and Congresspersons introduce tens of thousands of bills at the state and federal level. Many of those bills address issues of interest to, and could use input from, geoscientists. Unfortunately, identifying relevant bills and becoming involved in the legislative process can be as difficult as doing geology on Mars. However, just as careful planning and engineering can put a rover on Mars, so, too, can careful effort put a geoscientist into the capitol and the law-making process.
