AiQ Federal Legislation State Updates

AIQ News: 5/8/24

Most bills we’ve been following this year are in their respective Appropriations Committee and waiting on final hearings to determine if they will continue this session.

Stay tuned for our discussion on the Governor’s May Revise, which is the updated state budget that is released every year in May. The May Revise is being announced this Friday, May 10th. We will cover the updated state budget situation at AIQ on Wednesday, May 22nd. Join us!

Lobby Day is nearly here! Check out our priority bills for 2024.

Advocacy actions for the week:

  • Call your state Senators and ask them to support SB 1497 (Menjivar)! This is an important environmental justice bill that would make fossil fuel polluters pay for the damages associated with the sale of their products in the state. The bill is being heard in Senate Appropriations on Monday, May 13th. It’s also one of our Lobby Day bills!
  • Complete the federal ELCA Advocacy action alert on housing and homelessness.
