Legislators give reports at Hazelton
By Verda Seeklander
The District 28 Legislative Forum held at the Hazelton Coffee Shop Friday evening was well attended. Rep. William Kretschmar and Sen. Robert Erbele gave an update on the session. Crossover will be next week.
Rep. Mike Brandenberg was unable to attend because the House Appropriations Committee, of which he is a member, was still working on bills Friday night.
Education bills, highway appropriation bills, seat belts and Constitutional bills are among some of the big concerns this year. Taxing water use, fees for out-of-state hunters, pre-school and funding to preserve the Pioneer Heritage site at Strasburg were also discussed at length.
