Legislative Report for Mar. 12, 2015

Legislative Report for August 14, 2014

Activities:  Attended the county committee and board meetings.  Also attended the airport advisory meeting and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  Made numerous calls and responded to many emails regarding employment opportunities, FEMA flood mapping, Metro North, a citizen emergency preparedness training, environmental and criminal justice related issues.  Met with 6 constituents regarding various county issues.  Began working on the 4th Annual Health & Wellness Fair and managed social media content.

Bills:  Dog tethering bill was tabled for various reasons. Some of the concerns I had were the following:  1. not enough public comment; 2. the bill would be effective immediately when the public should have to time be aware and prepare for this new law; and 3. the amount of the fines appear to be a bit egregious.
