— Have questions about Act 10, Wisconsin’s drunken driving laws, state aid to cities or the condition of the Interstate system?

You can get all of those questions answered—as long as you have the correct change.


From 10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Friday, Rep. Amy Loudenbeck, R-Clinton, will meet her constituents on Janesville and Beloit city buses, according to a news release from the city of Janesville.


Loudenbeck represents the 45th Assembly District that includes most of Beloit, eastern Rock County and the far eastern and northeastern portions of Janesville.


Loudenbeck is holding “office hours” on the bus in an effort to reach constituents who wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet with her elsewhere, according to the news release.


Riding the bus also will give Loudenbeck the chance to see new construction and other changes in the district, according to the release.


Loudenbeck’s schedule:


-- 10 a.m.: Leaves from Beloit Transfer Center on the Beloit-Janesville Express bus, traveling Highway 51 to Blackhawk Technical College, past the Rock County Job Center and UW-Rock County.


-- 10:45 a.m.: Arrives at the Janesville Transfer Center, 123 S. River St., and continues on the Beloit-Janesville Express to the Rock County Health Care Center area then back to the transfer center.


-- 11:15 a.m.: Boards the Wright Road bus that will take her past the new St. Mary’s Janesville Hospital.


-- 11:45 a.m.: Boards the Milton Avenue bus, riding through northeastern Janesville including portions of her district north of Highway 14.


-- 12:45 p.m.: Arrives back at the transfer center and holds “office hours” in the waiting room until 1:15 p.m.


-- 2 p.m.: Boards Beloit Route 4 bus serving eastern parts of Beloit, including the Milwaukee Road commercial area, returning to the Beloit Transfer Center at 2:40 p.m.


“This isn’t a listening session on the budget or a citizen email exchange about an article they just read in the news,” Loudenbeck said in the news release. “This is the opportunity to ask people, ‘What keeps you up at night, and what can I do to help?’”
