You’re Invited: Online Legislative Updates



The next two online legislative update will be held Saturday, February 12, and Saturday, March 26, from 9:30 - 11 a.m., on Zoom.

The event is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Bloomington-Monroe County, the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce, the League of Women Voters of Brown County, and the Brown County Chamber of Commerce. 


State Senators Eric Koch (District 44) and Shelli Yoder (District 40), and State Representatives Jeff Ellington (District 62), Bob Heaton (District 46), Chris May (District 55), Peggy Mayfield (District 60), and Matt Pierce (District 61) representing Monroe and Brown Counties have been invited to report on their work and priorities for the current session of the Indiana General Assembly and to take questions from attendees.
