A group of Missouri lawmakers looking into downsizing state government is holding a hearing in Joplin this week. Representative Paul Curtman is the Chairman of the Downsizing State Government Committee:
"We're a group of lawmakers whose job is to look at state government policies and find out where the public wants us to get smaller so we can better work with them."
The Joplin hearing will be at the Joplin Chamber of Commerce on East 4th Street at 11:30am. It's open to the public.
