Washington news in brief
WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Boozman is inviting Arkansans to join him for a tele-town hall this week.
Hundreds of people have signed up for the hourlong conference call, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Monday.
But there’s room for plenty more, his office said.
Anyone wishing to participate can register at boozman. senate.gov/public/index.cfm/ signup-for-telephone-town halls.
Those who submit their information will get a phone call shortly before the event begins.
“Telephone town halls allow me to connect with Arkansans all over the state and discuss topics important to them. I look forward to the conversation,” Boozman said in a news release.
The Republican from Rogers will answer questions from callers.
The size of the audience likely will fluctuate throughout the hour, according to Boozman spokesman Patrick Creamer.
“Some people hang around for 10 or 15 minutes. Other people hang around the whole time,” he added.
