Four area legislators gathered at the Washington County Courthouse Saturday morning to hear concerns and answer questions from constituents. State senators Rich Taylor and Sandy Greiner and State Representatives Jarad Klein and Dave Heaton were in attendance. Each gave a report following funnel week of work they have been doing. Many local school representatives were present and urged the legislators to pass four-percent allowable growth for the schools and to allow schools to set their start dates. Other topics discussed were gas taxes and Medicaid expansion.
