It’s hard to believe that summer is already here! Normally APDC would be thoroughly winding down for the season. But the legislature started out slow and is now working on the first overtime session, so we still have action to follow. The state budgets are about the only thing on their plate at the moment and we’re continuing to support a sustainable operating budget and an adequate capital budget to keep up with our infrastructure needs.
Turning our focus inward, the executive board is currently working on hosting an abbreviated spring summit to review our legislative season and take stock of what we should repeat next year and what we might do better. Although none of the bills we supported this year have been passed and sent to the Governor, they did all see positive movement and will be on the docket when the next regular session starts in January.
Thank you for your continued support and enjoy the Memorial Day weekend!
