The start of the New Year is just around the corner, and so is the upcoming legislative session. After a clear anti tax message from voters at the ballot box, how will the Legislature make up an ever growing budget shortfall? Is education still a top concern for next year? What else is on the agenda? Has transportation been lost in the shuffle? Statewide, we will only see a small net gain of GOP seats in the Legislature, but how will national trends impact local politics?
The session is sure to be packed with competing goals. What are the Governor’s priorities? Are they in line with what the Legislature hopes to accomplish? CityClub annually features our top leadership from the State House and Senate. Don’t miss this special in-person opportunity to speak directly to them about the upcoming session and let them know what you think their priorities should be!
