NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Feel like you have no voice when it comes to subjects like gun rights, abortion, or how education is funded? A new website allows you to share a piece of your mind with Governor Bill Lee before he signs those bills into law.

The Governor's office set up a bill review page on a state website. Here's how it works: first you have to find the law you're looking for. For instance, if you wanted to comment on a bill that would remove fees for expunging criminal records you would first look up the bill number (in this case SB0797/HB0941). Then you'll fill out a short form and leave your comments.

The Governor's office says the website is part of his administration's "commitment to open and transparent government."
