In the past TBK has offered a Capitol Tour and Training, since it has been a few years since we did this we though we would offer it again. Basically what this is for is to help those that are new or may not feel comfortable going to the Capitol on their own yet a way to do it with others and get familiar with the place and process so in hopes that we can have more citizen activists involved in the legislative process. There will be seasoned legislative grassroots activists there to help guide you as well as people who are at the Capitol everyday to help explain the process. The agenda is set to start early so please plan accordingly, this is the best way we could make the schedule work, besides, if you are going to go to the Capitol on a normal day to get anything done you probably need to get there early anyway. Please respond ASAP to us either through our email at email@example.com or contact us through our website if you would like to attend. Below are the details of the event.
- Thursday Feb 5th 8:00 Capitol Annex Room # 113
- Robert Jenkins from the LRC to explain what the LRC does and the process of the bill.
- Bro. Lee Watts to explain his ministry to the legislature.
- Sen. John Schickel from Boone County to explain the legislator perspective.
- 9:30 Capitol Tour – Meet at the Rotunda entrance (you can get there through the annex tunnel)

FK – TBK has been around for years. Those with the patience and gumption should go help our elected public SERVANTS run the state. The “Liberal”(commie) trash and corporate lobbyists have been doing so for decades. It’s way past our turn.
TBK also meets today.
