2018 Legislative Forecast

December 2017: Quarterly Report

 

As we head toward the end of the year, the 2017 legislative session is but a distant image in our rearview mirror, and despite our enormous achievements, we’ve spent the fall months shifting focus to the upcoming 2018 session; teeing up our issues, meeting with key legislative staff members, the executive team, pertinent state agencies, the Division of Budget, and stakeholder organizations. When the 2018 session gavel strikes the sound block on January 3rd, the legislature will be facing a looming deficit in excess of $4 billion, a still fractured Senate, and a contentious election year cycle.  In the midst of such, we will continue to methodically and strategically keep NASW priorities in the consciousness of policy makers at each level. Click the image below to read the legislative report: 2018 Legislative Forecast
