NEWS

UNI IN THE NEWS: Recent news reports about possible changes to Iowa's "Bottle Deposit Law" have cited a survey conducted by UNI's Center for Social and Behavioral Research. The full report is available at the Center's Web site: http://csbsnt.csbs.uni.edu/dept/csbr/data/dnr_bott00/

HOW TO CONTACT LEGISLATORS: Personal e-mail to legislators should be transmitted via a personal e-mail provider, not the UNI e-mail system. If expressing your personal opinion to legislators via mail, use non-university stationery. UNI's Office of Governmental Relations oversees university communication with elected officials. As legislation is proposed, Governmental Relations often asks faculty, staff and students to contact legislators on UNI's behalf. If you have a university-related issue to share with elected officials, contact the Office of Governmental Relations, at 3-6144.
