An update on still-raging federal issues, featuring NACo Legislative Director Deborah Cox, will anchor MACo’s first Legislative Committee meeting of the interim on Wednesday, July 12. Ms. Cox will join the county leaders at MACo to discuss numerous major federal issues pending before Congress – health care changes, tax reforms, and the federal budget. With many topics grabbing daily headlines as well as widespread county interest, this update is timely and important for county officials and their local services.
The Legislative Committee will also hear the first report from its Initiative Committee, tasked with developing a slate of proactive legislative initiatives for the 2018 legislative session. County officials have submitted numerous items for consideration, and the Committee is tasked with assessing and refining that potential list to no more than four eventual proposals.
MACo staff will also offer updates on several issues that have developed since the end of the General Assembly session in April.
