In your mind, what is the most pressing problem affecting homeland security? Be prepared to provide a brief background of the problem, your rationale as to why you think it is the most urgent issue and a possible solution, or reason that there is not a solution at this time. As you research your issue, make notes of your concerns and inconsistencies found in the laws and policies.

  • Have they (the senator) authored a "bill" or joined a committee to resolve the issue?
  • What is the status of the problem they view as most pressing?

Part 2: In your letter, include questions that ask your state senator, what he or she feels is the most pressing problem in homeland security. Be polite, but ask exploratory questions:
