Introduce Resolutions to
City Councils and State Legislatures

We plan on using city council and state legislature resolutions to demonstrate that Americans want federal legislation based on the Gulf Coast Civic Works Project.  These resolutions will put pressure on Congress and the President to enact a WPA-like project for the Gulf Coast in the near future. Click here to see a draft of this legislation.

This idea for city council and state legislature resolutions came from Ms. Jeanette Oxford, a representative in the Missouri State Legislature.  Representative Oxford contacted us last month saying that she would like to introduce a resolution into the Missouri State Legislature in support of the Gulf Coast Civic Works Project.  Representative Oxford introduced her resolution in support of the Gulf Coast Civic Works Project in February. 
 
We thought it was a great idea, and have decided to replicate it around the country. 

Please feel free to use the Missouri resolution to create your own legislation.  Of course, you would have to edit it so it represents your city or state. 

If you decide to do so, please email us at gulfcoastcivicworks@gmail.com and let us know your plans.
