Members of the Okaloosa County state legislative delegation will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, December 15th, from 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. in Building K on the Niceville Campus of Northwest Florida State College. The meeting will be held inside the Gallery Room.

Delegation members will hear public comments on proposals for the 2011 regular session of the Florida Legislature. The delegation will also consider and vote on requests for what are called “local bills,” which is state legislation that only affects a particular municipality, taxing district, or school district within the county.

To request a spot on the agenda, individuals should contact Kevin Henderson in Representative Brad Drake’s office at (850) 892-8431 no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, December 13th.

The Okaloosa County legislative delegation includes Senator Don Gaetz, newly-elected Senator Greg Evers, Representatives Marti Coley, Brad Drake, Matt Gaetz, and newly-elected Representative Doug Broxson. Each of the delegation members also represent portions of other counties in Northwest Florida.
