The General Assembly has adjourned over four months now, but the “business” of politics continues on.  There are several study committees that are active this summer and into the fall.  Be on the lookout for these traveling road shows.  If you can make it to one or more of these meetings, it would be great so that you can be informed.  Let your leadership know of your concerns and interests, and particularly if you learn something that could affect economic development, either in a good or particularly in a bad way.  Following is a list of some of these meetings:

SR 222 - Senate Special Tax Exemption Study Committee

Terrific. I'll reach out to Chandler and get the details. Thank you! (I didn't get a chance to say "hello" today but I certainly enjoyed the placemaking presentation. I found the luncheon, generally, very worthwhile.)

Hi. I don't see any dates listed for SR410 while I see dates listed for the others. Is this because none has been scheduled for SR410? Thanks.
