The League of Women Voters of Johnson County will host an in-person Legislative Forum on Saturday, March 25, in the Hills Community Center, 110 Main St., Hills, from 9:30 -11 a.m. Doors open at 9 a.m.

Legislative Forums are held in January, February and March when the Iowa Legislature is in session. This final forum will focus on environmental stewardship. The League's Legislative Forums provide opportunities for constituents to ask legislators questions and legislators present information about issues they are working on, as well as, summaries of critical matters in their respective chambers.

The public is invited to attend the forums and ask legislators questions about legislation.

All Johnson County officials have been invited to participate in the legislative forums including Sens. Dawn Driscoll, Zach Wahls and Janice Weiner, and Reps. David Jacoby, Heather Hora, Elinor Levin, Amy Nielsen, Brad Sherman and Adam Zabner.

The forum will be moderated and timed by League members.

The forum will be live-streamed and videotaped.
