The Legislature in May

Spring has finally arrived, and the Legislature is not scheduled to be "in session" any more this year.

But that doesn't mean legislative work has come to a standstill. Committees will be holding public meetings and work sessions in various locations around the state all interim long.

May, for example, has the House Higher Education committee meeting at South Seattle Community College on Monday the 21st.  And the House Labor and Workforce Development Committee meeting at Sea Tac City Hall on Thursday the 31st.

These off-site hearings give legislators the opportunity to hear from community folks who might not be able to make a trip to Olympia during the regular legislative session.

Of course, plenty of other committees will be meeting in the tradition hearing rooms on the Capitol Campus in Olympia this month, too. 

You can keep track of individual committees - or all committees - by signing up for e-mail notification of upcoming meetings and work sessions.
