Momentum West plans 'Legislative Day', Feb. 16th

EAU CLAIRE -- A joint legislative advocacy event under the direction of Momentum West, a 10-county external marketing and collaborative economic development organization in west central and northwest Wisconsin, will take place in Madison on Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2010.

Tentative plans call for attendees to arrive in downtown Madison by 10:30 a.m. for a briefing on the issues, followed by lunch, afternoon appointments with legislators, and a reception. A coach bus will provide transportation to and from Madison for those wishing to utilize this service.

Feb. 16th is designated as a legislative floor session, meaning the state senators and representatives are expected to be in their respective chambers or offices. There is greater likelihood of meeting directly with senators and representatives instead of their staff.

Both regional issues and local ones will be presented to legislators. St. Croix EDC is preparing issues for consideration.

Suggested issues can be presented to the EDC by calling 715-381-4383.
