Nearly 50 residents from Arlington and Grand Prairie made the trip down to Austin on Tuesday, January 29th for House District 101 Day at the state Capitol.
Attendees were recognized from the House floor as honored guests by Representative Turner. The group later listened to Governor Perry’s State of the State address, which outlined his focus for the upcoming year.
At the conclusion of Governor Perry’s speech, the group attended a luncheon where they heard from State Senator Wendy Davis, as well as State Representatives Lon Burnam, Jessica Farrar, and Nicole Collier .
Attendees were then given a tour of the state Capitol building and the opportunity to visit the offices of other legislators. The day finished where it started, in the House gallery, for a group picture before heading back to Arlington.
