We look forward to seeing many city officials in Boise on Thursday, January 28 at the annual City Officials' Day at the Capitol. There is still time to register online.
The event will kick off with a Legislative Briefing at 9:00 a.m. in the Summit Room of the Boise Centre. The morning session will feature remarks from Idaho Lieutenant Governor Brad Little. We will also have a legislative panel moderated by Dr. Jim Weatherby, including Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill of Rexburg, House Local Government Committee Chair Rep. Lynn Luker of Boise and Rep. Rick Youngblood of Nampa. The morning session will also feature discussion concerning several legislative hot topics.
The meeting will break shortly before Noon to allow city officials to walk or take the AIC shuttles to the capitol to meet their legislators outside the House and Senate chambers on the third floor of the capitol building. City officials then escort the legislators to the luncheon at the Boise Centre, which will be in the Eagle Room.
In the afternoon, city officials can take a tour of the capitol, attend legislative committee hearings, or schedule private meetings with legislators or state agency staff.
We strongly recommend calling your legislators to let them know you will be in town and would like to sit with them at lunch. You can contact your legislator through the Legislative Information Center at (208) 332-1000. Generally, it is easiest to meet up with legislators outside of the House and Senate chambers at the capitol.
See you on Thursday!
