January 13th-17th, 2020

The Legislative Council and the Legislative Finance Committee are sponsoring a Legislative Week this January when all legislators will be invited to get together, receive training.  Tuesday and Wednesday are scheduled for all legislators to attend training sessions.  Many interim committees are meeting on Monday, Wednesday afternoon, Thursday, and Friday providing an opportunity for legislators that are not on the committees to attend.

The purpose is to bring legislators together to “cross-pollinate” and provide opportunities to receive some additional training and share information.  It is also being held in conjunction with the study in Senate Bill No. 310 that is looking into annual sessions and we thought giving a chance to meet in January 2020 is a small way to try on meeting every year.
