WEMTA Update: Opportunities to Meet with Legislators in District

State legislators are holding in-district listening sessions across the state to help inform their decision-making on the state budget and other legislative proposals. Listening sessions are a great way to form relationships with your local legislators and to educate them on issues that matter to you. If you live in one of the districts listed below, please considering attending an upcoming listening session to discuss the Common School Fund, staffing shortages, and other WEMTA priority issues with lawmakers.
