Following is information about two upcoming meetings of the South Central Kansas legislative delegation. The Tuesday evening meeting is for citizens, while the Thursday meeting is designed for government officials to present their case to the legislators, although at least some citizens are given preferential treatment in the case of the Northern Flyer Alliance.
At 7:00 p.m., on Tuesday, January 5, 2010, the Sedgwick County/South Central Kansas legislative delegation will be hosting a public hearing and inviting public input in the Jury Room of the Sedgwick County Court House, 525 N. Main, Wichita, Kansas. This is your opportunity to address your concerns to area legislators prior to the convening of the 2010 legislative session that begins in Topeka on January 11, 2010. Entry to the Court House will be through security on the north side of the building. In past years speakers have been given approximately 3 minutes to speak depending on the number of people wanting to speak.
From 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 7, 2010, the Sedgwick County/South Central Kansas legislative delegation will be holding their annual meeting at the Wichita State University Marcus Center located at 4205 E. 21st Street, Wichita, Kansas, just east of the WSU baseball stadium. The public is invited but will not be allowed to formally address the delegation. This is your opportunity to listen and find out about the legislative agendas of local governmental units like the City of Wichita, Sedgwick County, USD-259, Wichita State University, and private sector groups like the Wichita Chamber of Commerce, Wichita Independent Business Association, and others.
