Holiday Dinner Legislative Update with Paul Johnson

Tuesday evening, December 11 at the Advanced Learning Library, 711 W. 2nd Street

Paul Johnson, LWV legislative analyst, will present updates on the 2019 Legislative Session in Topeka.  Paul knows what’s going on with taxes, the budget, Medicaid expansion, judicial selection, school funding and other issues we should pay attention to as our newly elected state officials take office in the next session. Throughout the year, he provides weekly summaries of the Kansas State Legislature’s activities including hearings, bills introduced, testimony, calendars and background analysis. Paul is always very insightful and this will be a terrific program!

RSVP for the buffet Italian dinner ($25) by this Thursday, Dec. 6 to 316-573-5583 or info@lwvwichita.org. Or if you want to come to just the program, there is no charge, but please RSVP so we will save room for you!

You also will have the opportunity to make your year-end donation to the League of Women Voters Education Fund in person or online. Your tax deductible gift will help support our voter registration efforts in 2019.
