Visiting the Capitol
One of the most effective actions you can take is to visit the state capitol and talk to our elected officials.

Be extremely polite.
Thank them for their time and for representing you.
Be clear on what you want.
Share how you are impacted.
Thank them for supporting the democratic process that gives voice to citizens through their elected officials.

Assess risk within the agency and develop performance audit objectives during each audit cycle.
