State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, is encouraging constituents, including Almanac readers, to think about situations that might benefit from a new state law, and situations that might benefit if a current law were retired. His fifth annual "Oughta Be A Law … Or Not" contest is accepting ideas until Jan. 15.
Sen. Hill's 13th Senate district includes the communities of Atherton, Menlo Park, Woodside and Portola Valley. Constituents with an interest in this contest should email, fax or mail their entries to Sen. Hill's Palo Alto office.
