People in Grand Forks had a chance to voice their frustrations about public.

Many public employees are against the proposed changes to their benefit plans.

If the plan changes, it will go from a define benefits plan to a define contribution system.

One lawmakers says the state will lose employees if it converts plus open millions of dollars.

"That cross over would have an infusion of tens of millions of public dollars that's something that I don't think we should do because frankly the define benefits plan is working," said Grand Forks Senator Mac Schneider of District forty-two.

Area politicians informed the public about up coming bills and what's next on the agenda.
