Legislative Literacy: Know Your Indiana State Government

A panel discussion is being offered to the public on the inner workings of our Indiana State Legislature during its annual session. What is the process for a bill to become a law? How can you follow the progress of a bill in the Indiana General Assembly? Do you know who your state legislators are and how to effectively communicate with them? How do legislative advocates and the media influence our engagement in state government?

Find answers to these questions and ask others at a panel discussion moderated by the League of Women Voters of Hamilton County. Hear from Donna Schaibley, Representative of Indiana House District 24; John Krull, Director of Franklin College’s Pulliam School of Journalism and host of WFYI’s No Limits news and public affairs program; Julia Vaughn, Policy Director for Common Cause; and Debbie Asberry, Redistricting Reform Advocate for the Indiana League of Women Voters..

The program will be moderated and each panelist will be allowed to present their point of view and knowledge in a timed period followed by an open Q&A session from the public.

This event is a partnership between the League of Women Voters of Hamilton County and the Carmel Clay Public Library.
