Wednesday, December 14, 2016 – 10:00am EST
Capitol Annex Building, Room 129
702 Capitol Ave, Frankfort, KY
Kentucky Home Birth Coalition has been invited to present to the Interim Joint Committee on Health and Welfare. This will consist of members of the H&W committees from both the House and Senate (although the House committee membership will change in 2017). With 2017 being a “short” session lasting 30 days, this will be a critical time for us to update the committees on the work that has been done since the end of the 2016 session. As always, it makes a POWERFUL statement for the room to be filled with supporters.
The meeting will be in the Capitol Annex building in Frankfort. See driving and parking directions here: http://bit.ly/
Babies and school age children are welcome. There is a quiet room in the annex that can be used for nursing/pumping/etc if needed (but feel free to feed your baby anywhere!). Toddlers and preschoolers will not enjoy the meeting 🙂
If your Senator or Representative is a member of the Interim Joint Committee on Health & Welfare, you can also try to schedule a meeting with them on the same day, either before or after the committee meeting. See committee members here: http://www.lrc.ky.gov/
To schedule a meeting, call 502-564-8100 and ask for the office of the person you wish to meet with. When transferred, explain that you want to schedule a meeting with that person, and that you will be in Frankfort on December 14 for the Health & Welfare Committee meeting. Once you have a meeting scheduled, please let us know ASAP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We can arrange for someone to accompany you. You do not have to be an expert on our legislation to meet with your legislators– just be willing to tell them that this legislation is important to YOU!
If you have questions, just ask!
