Residents have until Jan. 1 to enter the San Mateo legislator's fourth annual "Oughta Be a Law ... or Not" contest.
Hill will select a winner and then introduce legislation based on the chosen idea. Submissions can range from proposals for local community improvements to statewide reforms.
The winner will have a chance to testify in Sacramento at a hearing on the legislation.
"This is a great opportunity for constituents to participate in our democracy and learn about the legislative process," Hill said in a statement.
Applications can be obtained on Hill's website at http://asmdc.org/members/a19/.
