The Democratic Study Group at Panorama will hold a forum beginning at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 12 to learn about two legislative resolutions and two initiatives on the Nov. 2 ballot.
The event is at the Panorama retirement community’s auditorium on Circle Loop in Lacey. It is open to the public.
Pro and con statements will be made on these issues:
Senate Joint Resolution 8225, which addresses the state debt limit.
House Joint Resolution 4220, which would let judges deny bail in certain criminal cases that carry potential life prison terms and those in which there is a clear threat of violence if the defendant is released.
Initiative 1100, which would put the sale, distribution and importation of liquor in private-sector hands.
Initiative 1105, which also would close state liquor stores but issue licenses to private parties to sell or distribute liquor.
