“The Making of our Nation’s Laws” and other resources available on our website

Dear Mayor:

In response to a number of inquiries, we wanted to remind you of the federal government and federal relations resources that you can access on our website,

Our popular “The Making of Our Nation’s Laws” brochure provides a step-by-step account of the legislative process in Washington, D.C. Along the way, it is filled with interesting procedural notes and explanations of congressional nomenclature that can help your citizens better understand events, as they unfold. You can access this brochure at . We hear that Mayors often use this resource, when asked to address school groups, youth organizations and civic associations.

Our Federal Issue Alerts let you know when developments in Washington might have an impact on local government in New Jersey. You will find them posted at And you can use this information to contact our U.S. Senators and Congressional Representatives to share, with them, your thoughts and preferences. (You can bet that they will hear from special interests on these matters. But only you can explain to them the impact that their decisions could have on your citizens,)

Should questions arise about the proper display of the American Flag, or if you want to find an internet link to any Federal agency or if you want to know how to contact your Congressperson, by phone, fax or internet, you will find quick links to the information you need at

We hope you find these resources helpful. If you have any questions, or suggestions on how we can improve these services, please contact Jon Moran at 609-695-3481, ext. 121 or

Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
