It’s the start of the 2013 legislative session and that means it’s time for the Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance’s Legislative Briefings. Henry County residents have the opportunity to share their views with state lawmakers at a public forum to be held tomorrow morning. It will run from 8:30 to 10 am in the International Room of the Chadwick Library at IWC.
Representative Dave Heaton and Senator Rich Taylor are scheduled to attend tomorrow. Moderating will be Pat Coen, the superintendant for W-MU and WACO school districts. The topic for discussion for this first briefing of the season will feature education as the primary topic of discussion.
Governor Terry Branstad has called for education reform in 2013 and all area residents are encouraged to attend the forum to learn about his proposal’s and local lawmakers’ responses to this. The final 45 minutes of the forum are open to all other topics of state interest.
