Looking ahead to the legislative session

This is a 30 day budget session that starts on January 21st, 2020.

As we embark on the 30-day budget session at our State Legislature, we will again carry out grassroots lobby trainings throughout the state.  These trainings will provide you with an overview of key bills that our environmental community will be pushing forward (and in some cases pushing back on.).  You’ll hear from actual, local elected official about their experience at the Roundhouse and about what they think makes for an effective grassroots lobbyist. The training will help you learn how you can play a role in passing environmental legislation.

We’ll put our skills to the test on Tuesday, January 28 at Environment Day at the Roundhouse.  We’ll have information tables up and down the Halls of History at the Roundhouse.  We’ll provide several informational panels on the bills that we are promoting, in addition to a couple of short lobby trainings for people who want a refresher before we go in groups to speak with legislators.  We’ll visit Committee Hearings where our priority bills are being heard. And we’ll have an event at noon in the Rotunda to hear from our elected environmental champions. You can also sign up for this event here – https://tinyurl.com/Lobby2020.
