Reminder: Constituent Coffee                                


Constituent Coffee Tomorrow,  Saturday, December 8th

I wasn’t able to hold my usual first-Saturday coffee, as I needed to be out of town for the House Democrats’ pre-session caucus retreat.  So, this time it will be on the second Saturday, December 8 -- Tomorrow.

Please join me at Case Study Coffee (5347 Northeast Sandy Boulevard) from 3:00 to 4:30 in the afternoon.  I’ll be sharing further details about the recent revenue forecast and the Governor’s proposed budget, as well as what I know about bills that are being introduced. We’ll have lots to discuss.  Bring your comments and questions!

Legislative Committee Hearings Next Week

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week will be the Legislature’s quarterly “Legislative Days,” during which all of the committees meet to get status reports on legislation that was enacted in the 2011 and 2012 sessions, and to hear about issues that may produce legislation in February.  This will be the last time that these interim committees (with their “co-chairs” and “co-vice-chairs”) will be meeting.  New committee assignments will come out on December 17.

To see the schedule for all the committees and task forces, go to and click on “December Legislative Days Committee Schedule.” The various committee agendas are all available on the legislative web site.  Go to the Committees tab and click on “Committee Agendas Online.”  As you’ll see, there are a number of very interesting topics on the various agendas.

You can watch the hearings live through the internet or listen to them via audio archives after the fact. (There are links on the committee web pages.) Let us know if you need any help with that.

See you tomorrow!
