Lawmakers are gearing up for the 2019 legislative session. So is KVOE News.

As has been the case the last several years, KVOE News will interview our local and area lawmakers to get their sense of what may be taking place for the upcoming session. That process begins Wednesday as 76th District Representative Eric Smith (R-Burlington) joins the KVOE Newsmaker 2 segment at 8:20 am.

Next week, KVOE News continues the process during the Newsmaker 2 slot:

*Monday: 17th District Senator and Senate Vice President Jeff Longbine (R-Emporia)
*Jan. 8: 51st District Representative Ron Highland (R-Wamego)
*Jan. 9: 60th District Representative Mark Schreiber (R-Emporia)

The session begins Jan. 14 and will see a change in the governor's chair after Democrat Laura Kelly topped Republican Kris Kobach during the general election in November.
