House, Senate Health & Welfare panels set joint listening hearing Feb. 8

The House and Senate Health & Welfare committees have announced a joint listening hearing Feb. 8 from 8-10 a.m. in the Capitol Auditorium, at the request of the House speaker and the Senate president pro-tem. The House and Senate committee chairmen said in a statement that they “consider it a privilege to hear from citizens … and value the public’s input.” Click here for their full announcement.

The listening hearing follows another scheduled for Feb. 1 by the House and Senate Education committees, which will run from 8-10:30 a.m., also in the Capitol Auditorium. The speaker and pro-tem requested the committees to hold the sessions after asking the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee, which writes the state budget, not to hold such listening sessions this year, and instead to have those sessions held by the germane subject-matter committees.
