Letter to an Elected Official This assignment involves writing a clear and compelling two-page letter to an elected official identifying a federal or state policy problem that is meaningful to you, proposing a solution to the problem, and conducting and interpreting research to bolster the letter. In the letter, you must analyze how this problem impacts you personally, people in your community, people in your state, and, if a federal issue, people across the United States. You must recommend at least one legislative solution. You can create your own original legislative solution, or you can support or oppose a portion of a bill that is currently pending before Congress or the state legislature. You must support your solution with data and examples from at least two outside sources (books, journals, reliable internet sources) and discuss why your solution is better than other options. All outside research must be properly cited. The letter must be 500 words in length.
