I find elected officials hold office hours and listening sessions often. I have also found that if you schedule an appointment to meet with them in district they will try to meet with you. If you plan to go to Madison and schedule an appointment at the State Capitol you will surely get to meet with them. If you do not want to go on an appointment alone, we will accompany you, just ask. If you need information to provide them on your appointment, again, just ask.
I find that elected officials notify people of these in district listening sessions, town halls or office hours in a variety of ways. Some send out emails, some post on facebook, some send out press releases. Usually they do not notify us or anyone in advance and sometimes they do not have give 24 hour notice to these meetings. It is important for you in the field to keep an eye on these events, notify us and attend them yourself. Keep the cannabis conversation going!
Currently we have four (4) active bills/legislation pending in the 2019-2020 cycle. Assembly Rep. Felzkowski, Republican from Irma has introduced AB 236 protecting firearms owners/medical marijuana patients protection. The other three bills she is not listed as a current co-sponsor. While in Madison during the winter of 2018 I had a chance to met with Rep. Felzkowski to discuss the importance of home growing, smoking products and offer my insight on the issue and felt she had a firm grasp on the subject matter. In fact, it was one of the best Republican meetings I had in a long time! Additionally, past reports have indicated she supports marijuana reform and has been dealt the hard task of drafting a bill that will pass the Republican controlled Senate and Assembly.
