Representative Young Schedules ‘Town Hall’ Meeting on May 18 at Ralph Ellison Library
OKLAHOMA CITY (12 May 2017) – State Rep. George E. Young, Sr., has scheduled a “town hall” meeting in Oklahoma City the evening of May 18.
The event will be held at the Ralph Ellison Library, 2000 NE 23rd Street, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The town hall meeting “is intended not only for the constituents of Oklahoma House District 99 but also for all residents of Oklahoma,” said Dr. Young, an Oklahoma City Democrat.
The Reverend Young said he will discuss measures he filed in the Legislature this year and the challenges of achieving passage of any particular piece of legislation.
This year, the 101 state House members filed 1,340 bills and 24 joint resolutions, and the 48 state Senators filed 830 bills and 46 joint resolutions. That’s a total of 2,240 measures.
The Legislature is comprised of 149 members who represent districts throughout the state, extending from Kenton, near the New Mexico line, to Quapaw, near the Missouri line, and from Chilocco north of Newkirk, near the Kansas state line, to Colbert southwest of Durant, near the Red River.
Young, a second-term lawmaker, said he will discuss the legislative process and engage the audience in conversations about their concerns and suggestions.
