Ohio lawmaker seeks ideas, offers free lunch
WALTON HILLS, OH -- An Ohio lawmaker is offering a free lunch in exchange for a good idea.
Republican state Rep. Marlene Anielski has launched a contest she calls "There Ought to Be a Law." She wants constituents from her suburban Cleveland district to send her proposals for legislation to be introduced at the Statehouse.
Anielski says she'll invite the person with the best idea to lunch and present a flag flown over the state Capitol building. The proposal may be turned into a bill for the fall legislative session.
In a news release announcing the contest, Anielski said last week she thought it was a good way to get the people in her district more directly involved in what's happening in Columbus.
The deadline for entering is Sept. 30.
