Welcome to the first issue of the 2016 Legislative Hubbub!
We're back to keep you up to date about all the policy proposals, decision-making and partner policy activities relating to community development.
We will be in your inbox every week (and on The Hub's facebook pageand blog!) to give you the rundown on what has happened with community development bills we're watching, what activities we're planning to participate in, and that we'd like to see you at too, and how you can keep as engaged as possible with our State Legislature - even if you're tuning in from a remote, snow-packed mountain.
This week we're highlighting Senate bills and proposed constitutional amendments that caught our eye. We've got more information on how you can stay tuned in to the legislative session, and some quick and easy reference information on the changes in legislative seats.
Finally, we invite you to try our new favorite toy, Periscope. Some legislators are using it as the new social media communications tool - have you tried it?
We hope to see you at the Locals Foods Day and the Broadband Rally next Tuesday, January 28. Until then, we hope you enjoy all the community development news we can fit into your inbox!
From automatic voter registration of high school students, to liquor on Sundays and a new strategy to fight the problem of abandoned buildings... There were a number of bills introduced in Week 1 worth keeping a close eye on.
