Friday, March 5 – Sen. Howard Marklein (17th) and Rep. Tony Kurtz (50th)
1-2 p.m. LaValle Town Hall
The format for the Listening Sessions are designed for the legislators to receive input and ideas about the State Budget. The legislators do not plan to answer questions, debate ideas, challenge the ideas or otherwise comment because they seek to hear every point-of-view equally. The goal is for every attendee to feel comfortable sharing their input.
Depending on the number of people who attend, the session moderator may set a time limit for each attendee to share their thoughts (2-3 minutes) so that everyone has a chance to speak. If there are only a few people, the session may be more casual.
Constituents are welcome to attend to listen to others and submit written ideas, however, facility capacity limitations may impact audience observation. As always, all constituents are invited to call, email or write to the legislators at any time to share thoughts, ideas and concerns.
In the case of inclement weather, please visit Sen. Marklein’s website, Facebook page or call 608-266-0703 to determine if the Session will be held.
