Council asks members for help shaping 2002 legislative agenda

The Business Council is asking its members what policy issues should be the focus of its advocacy activities in 2002.

The Steering Committee of The Council's Government Affairs Council will meet at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 29, at The Council to discuss The Council's legislative agenda next year.

Members are also invited to communicate about their priority issues directly with Elliott Shaw, The Council's director of government affairs.

"Although the current year's budget is not resolved, it's not too early to consider what next year's priorities should be," said Daniel B. Walsh, president/CEO of The Business Council.

"Because next year is an election year, there could be movement on many key issues, so we have to start preparing early."

The Board of Directors of The Business Council sets the legislative priorities each year when it meets at The Council's Annual Meeting in September. The Annual Meeting this year will take place September 19-21 at The Sagamore in Bolton Landing.
