The tried and true way to be involved is to participate in our democracy. Parlor 145 presents the information below for the voting public in the Calistoga area; and does not endorse any particular political party.

Believe it or not, elected officials do actually pay attention to letters, phone calls, email, and even telegrams (yes—you can still send a telegram—a real person delivers it!—about $40 for a couple of sentences).

Be an informed citizen! Find out what your elected officials are doing by visiting their websites, then contact them with your opinions.

Pending Legislation plus Existing Laws and Codes Links


Most people don't know what their elected representative actually do. With the magic of the internet and those indefatigable information heroes at the Library of Congress, you can find out instantly (well, almost). Pay a visit to the Thomas Register run by the Library of Congress. You can easily search all the bills sponsored by senator or representative. It also has the history of bills passed into law or not, as well as access to all existing federal laws.

State of California

Go to Not as comprensive as the Thomas register; but has prretty nifty search tool where you can search by keyword in any upcoming bills. The text of all of California's existing state laws are available at
