2022 Legislative Cracker Barrel list

2/3/2022

Legislative coffees or cracker barrels are time-honored gatherings that allow citizens to question local legislators on the issues of the day. Generally, local community service groups host these one to two-hour town hall meetings on Saturdays during the legislative session. This is prime back home access to your local legislators during the session.
