DeLissio to discuss PA legislative process and priorities

PHILADELPHIA, March 10 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., will hold her 62nd town hall meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 23, in the Mifflin Elementary School Auditorium, 3624 Conrad St., Philadelphia.

“We will discuss the legislative process, how and why legislation moves or stalls, and the channels a bill must take in order to become law,” DeLissio said. “The legislative process in Pennsylvania has many steps and discussing how decisions are made in the capitol is a topic that I want to share with constituents.

“I look forward to this town hall as an opportunity to dialogue with my constituents about current legislative priorities.   

“Understanding the legislative process and where to go to get legislative updates on bills that are important to you is integral to knowing how to advocate and help advance legislation.

DeLissio said that this town hall is perfect timing for those seeking to become actively engaged in governmental issues, or those seeking to learn more about current Pennsylvania legislative priorities. Best practices for being proactive and involved will be shared.
