Legislative Breakfast at VUJC

This past Saturday at the Vincennes University Jasper Campus local legislators met with the public to hear questions and concerns for the locale area. On hand were State Senator Mark Messmer and Local State Representative Lloyd Arnold and Mike Braun.


The meeting lasted about 2 hours with the legislators hearing questions on everything from education reform, with concern over the state funding a pre-k pilot program, to hearing on environmental concern for the southern Indiana area.

Mark Messmer answered question regarding broad band service for the areas of Perry and Spencer counties, saying that it would be beneficial if local power companies could run board band along already established electric poles.


Messmer discussed that there is a current bill that is up for voting and how it will allow the way for board band in the area.


If you were not able to make it to the Legislative Breakfast on Saturday 18 WJTS will re-air the whole meeting this Tuesday Feb 28 at 1:30 EST and Thursday March 2 at 8 pm.
