    We are waiting to confirm one additional panelist as well as our moderator. The format will be similar with plenty of time for audience questions and the idea is that all in attendance will get an update on the rewrites that are being proposed to this bill during the 2006 session. As always, email or call the LWVGA office if you have any questions.
