Children are indeed our future, but Miami Democratic Rep. Ashley Gantt wants their help solving today’s problems too.
Gantt’s office launched a new bill-writing contest Monday seeking legislative input from high schoolers in House District 109, which spans inland Miami-Dade County from Opa-locka to downtown Miami.
Submissions are due by Oct. 1. Gantt will sponsor the winning idea as one of seven bills she’ll sponsor in the 2024 Legislative Session.
“Our office believes in creating opportunities for young people to engage in politics and serve at the forefront of creating impactful policies,” Gantt said of the program.
