The bipartisan delegation representing the 41st Legislative District is hosting town hall meetings Saturday.
State Sen. Steve Litzow, a Republican, and state Reps. Judy Clibborn and Marcie Maxwell, both Democrats, represent western Issaquah, including Talus and other Cougar Mountain communities.
Meet the delegation at meetings scheduled for 10 a.m. at Hazelwood Elementary School, 116th Ave. S.E., Newcastle, and for 1:30 p.m. at Mercer Island High School, 9100 S.E. 42nd St.
Citizens can receive updates about the ongoing legislative session, and share questions, comments and concerns about legislation, state government and issues affecting the district.
The state faces a $4.6 billion hole in the budget for 2011-13. Residents could face increased fees and reduced services from state agencies, and larger class sizes in schools as a result of widespread cuts.
5th Legislative District lawmakers also plan a town hall meeting at Issaquah City Hall on the same day.
