Council 4 Announces Priorities for 2023 Legislative Session

The General Assembly convened last week for a "long" legislative session that concludes June 7. Since this is an odd-numbered year, the General Assembly and governor will work towards completing a state budget.

Council 4's legislative priorities, informed by discussions with Council 4 leaders and members, reflect a commitment to properly fund quality public services, maintain and increase staffing at the state and local levels, and advocate for workers' rights and protections.

After a long hiatus due to the pandemic, Council 4 will once again host a lobby day on May 17. Lobby day is an excellent opportunity for members to make their voices heard. By joining together at the Capitol, members will be able to meet with their legislators and advocate for worker-friendly bills. In addition, emails and phone calls to lawmakers will continue to be vital in support of our legislative priorities and the issues important to our members.
