You Paid For it: Legislative bulk mailings
The numbers are in: In the five months from April to September last year, state lawmakers spent $7 million on bulk mailings.
Senators spent $3.8 million, and Assembly members $3.2 million, on mailings that can often look a lot like campaign material.
There are rules about how close to an election mailers can be sent, and some go right up to the deadline.
And You Paid For It.
