State Rep. Rick Billinger. R-Goodland, was among 37 lawmakers to complete a leadership training program that identifies and assists emerging state and provincial leaders in the Midwest.

Billinger met with fellow lawmakers from Kansas, 10 other Midwestern states and four Canadian provinces this month, in Madison, Wis., for the Council of State Governments' 18th annual Bowhay Institute for Legislative Leadership Development.

BILLD was founded in 1995 to help new legislators meet the demands of serving as a legislator.
