Sandifer launches legislative survey

Rep. Bill Sandifer

SENECA — To get input on key legislative issues, Rep. Bill Sandifer, R-Seneca, is conducting a major constituent survey that covers areas such as education, the economy, taxes, immigration and the environment.

“With the 2008 legislative session just around the corner in January, we’ll be working on legislation that fights illegal immigration, provides tax cuts for families, reforms education and expands the economy,” Sandifer said. “I want to listen and understand how my constituents feel about these important issues and others.”

Designed to be an open forum for sharing input and ideas, the survey is comprised of several “multiple-choice questions,” along with open-ended questions where constituents can give more details about their views. The survey is relatively brief and most people can complete it in 5-10 minutes.

“I encourage all Oconee area residents to respond to this survey and I look forward to reading every word they submit,” Sandifer said. “When I understand where citizens stand on some of the major issues, I can better represent them in Columbia.”

Sandifer’s survey can be accessed online at or to receive a copy in the mail, call Sandifer’s 24-hour message center at (864) 885-2240.

Sandifer has served as representative for state District 2 since 1994. He was part of the historic sweep that brought the first Republican majority to the House since the days of Reconstruction.
