Is it true that our legislature is becoming more liberal/progressive? This article on the Progressive States Network website might help you with your answer.
The article praises our state legislature for passing a bill that will allow 16 and 17 year olds to register to vote.
The article states that “this effort will rebound to our benefit” and goes on to say,
“What this means for progressives is that efforts to engage the
youth electorate is one of the most effective way to bring progressive-
minded voters to the polls. It is in large part due to the
engagement of this population that President Obama was
able to win last November. And as progressive state legislators
face a challenging mid-term election environment, keeping young
people engaged will be key to cementing gains made in 2006 and
Only 6 legislators voted against this bill.
My answer to the proposed question: “True,” our legislature is definitely more liberal/progressive.
