AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

With over 1.8 million pieces of communication expected to be sent to Austin during this legislative session, it's easy to think your ideas will drown in the noise.

However, the Panhandle's elected officials say there are ways to effectively reach your representatives in Austin.

"The reality is, personal communication is very effective and very persuasive," said State Rep. Four Price. "While everything sent to us is read, unsigned emails or form letters are not as persuasive as personal communication."

Here's how to contact our local representative during legislative session:
