17th District lawmakers talk proposed legislation with constituents
Lawmakers representing the 17th Legislative District talked the issues with constituents March 29 as a telephone town hall was hosted that focused on education funding, road infrastructure, the smoking age and REAL ID act compliance, among other things.
The day following a similar telephone town hall hosted by the legislators of the 20th District, lawmakers representing part of Clark County took to their own phones to answer questions from the public.
Sen. Lynda Wilson and Reps. Paul Harris and Vicki Kraft, all R-Vancouver, addressed about a dozen different questions from largely Vancouver-area citizens. Questions covered a variety of topics with the big concerns of how the state will fulfill the mandate of the McCleary school funding case decision as well as road projects in the county and across the Columbia River.
