Rep. Drew Stokesbary, R-Auburn, and Rep. Morgan Irwin, R-Enumclaw, invite residents of the 31st District to join them Wednesday, Jan. 9 for a telephone town hall meeting.

The community conversation, which is similar to a call-in radio show, will begin at 6 p.m. and last one hour.

It’s an opportunity to ask questions directly to the lawmakers, while they provide information on the upcoming 2019 legislative session. Stokesbary and Irwin expect to vote on major proposals dealing with mental health, affordable housing and environmental policies.

The Legislature must also write a biennial state budget. Last month, Gov. Inslee issued his proposed budget, which would increase state spending by 20 percent, funded in part by a new capital gains income tax and higher businesses taxes.

Most residents will receive invitations to participate by phone just before the meeting begins. Those wishing to call in simply need to dial 253-215-1070 beginning at 6 p.m. Once connected, they can listen in and press (*) star on their telephone keypad to ask questions.

Stokesbary serves on the Appropriations and Finance committees.

Irwin serves on the Capital Budget, Civil Rights and Judiciary, and Transportation committees.

Questions prior to the telephone town hall meeting can be sent to Stokesbary at 360-786-7846 or drew.stokesbary@leg.wa.gov, and Irwin at 360-786-7866 or morgan.irwin@leg.wa.gov,

The 2019 legislative session begins Jan. 14 and runs 105-consecutive days.
