When you have an issue or concern within the jurisdiction of the State of California, contact your representatives. Common issues related to insurance, public safety, highways, and infrastructure are often governed at the state level. Our elected officials depend upon feedback from their constituencies to make decisions. Much like at the federal level, we have recourse through our governor, state senators and assembly members.
