OLYMPIA -- Two groups of Spokane-area legislators will hold telephone conferences this week in an effort to let the folks back home ask questions or raise concerns about issues.
Constituents can call in just to listen, or to ask a question that could get them a live answer.
Tonight Central Spokane's 3rd District delegation -- Sen. Andy Billig and Reps. Timm Ormsby and Marcus Riccelli -- have a "telephonic town hall" from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. To take part, call 1-877-229-8493, and enter the ID code of 18646 when asked. To ask a question, you'll have to press *3.
On Thursday, Northeastern Washington's 7th District delegation -- Sen. John Smith and Reps. Joel Kretz and Shelly Short -- have a similar set up from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The toll-free call-in number is the same, 1-877-229-8493, but the ID number is different: 15429.
