    UPDATE 11/10/17:  Due to an unfortunate scheduling error, this workshop had to be postponed to a later date.

    “Wondering who is in the Arizona Legislature is, what they do, where they do it and how and why they do the things they do. Wondering how to get them to listen to you? Come to our informative session and learn about law making in Arizona. Lisa and Maggie will cover: How, where and when do legislators propose and pass new laws? How and when can we find out how a new law will affect us? How and when can we track a bill’s progress in the Legislature? How and when can we tell legislators what we think of a bill before it becomes law? – Learn about RTS (Request to Speak). You don’t have to go to Phoenix to speak to the Legislature. Why should we tell them what we think?” Hosted by LD9 Democrats[%7B%22mechanism%22%3A%22bookmarks%22%2C%22surface%22%3A%22bookmarks_menu%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%22[]%22%7D%2C%7B%22surface%22%3A%22dashboard%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22calendar_tab_event%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%22[]%22%7D]%2C%22ref%22%3A46%2C%22source%22%3A2%7D
