In the midst of reported, and disputed, turmoil in Washington, D.C., U.S. Rep. Scott Perry will hold his second “tele-town hall” meeting of the year tonight.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 2, and constituents can listen in using a link posted on Dillsburg Republican's Facebook page.

Constituents can also listen in via their telephones. In order to do so, they must follow this link and enter contact information to receive a phone call when the meeting begins.

Scott Perry conducts a  Facebook Live Town Hall last year. He is hosting another town hall meeting March 18.

Those who want to ask questions of the congressman can pose them over the phone or post them on the audio livestream. There will be no video feed from Perry's meeting.

Since Perry’s last in-person town hall in March, legislative efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare have failed on numerous occasions and ground to a halt, while other major planks of the Republican Party’s platform in 2016, such as tax reform, have yet to come up for debate by lawmakers.

Perry also is likely to face questions about his support for President Donald Trump, whose administration has been engulfed by investigations into his campaign’s contacts with Russian officials and political infighting among his top deputies.

At the town hall in March, Perry tried to distance himself Trump’s administration and brand of leadership, but many of those there that day left unconvinced.

Perry announced the town hall around 6 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 1, giving constituents of Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District just 24 hours notice of the opportunity to hear from and question their representative in the nation’s capital.
