Want to make some laws? You can in LawCraft, where you play a member of Congress from the state of your choice. You'll pick an issue that's important to you and your constituents and take it all the way through the law-making process. If you're successful, you'll have a bill you can print and show off. See if you can make the compromises necessary to get your bill passed and still make a law you're proud of!
The districts represented in this game were based on the most up to date information available at the time of development. Redistricting may have occurred in some states.
