Find your legislator

The easiest way to do this is to go to the Oregon State Legislature's website at
https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/
and enter your address (with zip code)
Contacting your legislators and asking them to support TAG is very important!  Ask them  to support categorical TAG funding.
