Many issues important to you are certain to be discussed in your hometown and debated by lawmakers in your home state. What happens in Washington, D.C., during the coming year is also certain to be critical to your trucking business. With the second session of the 116th U.S. Congress convening in January, lawmakers are already hard at work, so it’s time to start the communication process with them.

Congressional phone number

You can call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 to be transferred to any representative’s or senator’s office. All you have to do is provide the operator your home ZIP code.

Be sure to try and reach your legislators at their district offices when they are not in D.C. Contact information can be found on their congressional website, on their social media page, or in the local phone book under the government section.

You need to know only two addresses to send letters to your U.S. representative and senators, no matter who they are.
