Students can meet and question lawmakers on Wednesday during a mock legislative session to address funding issues and tuition increases at the University.

Sen. Sandra Pappas, DFL-St. Paul, and Rep. Doug Stang, R-Cold Springs, will attend the session to answer questions. Pappas chairs the Higher Education Budget Division in the Senate and Stang chairs the Higher Education Finance Committee in the House.

The event is organized by the Student Legislative Action Partnership. Junior member Corey Gella said the goal of the session is to give students pointers on how they can make a difference in the Legislature.

The session will take place from 8-9:30 p.m. today in the 3M Auditorium at the Carlson School of Management.
