As a busy formal legislative session recently came to a close, the MMA’s Legislative Division hosted a webinar for local officials yesterday to provide updates on key legislative and regulatory matters and highlight MMA priorities for the next several months.

The briefing covered the fiscal 2024 state budget as well as the fiscal 2023 closeout supplemental budget bill, the recently enacted tax relief package, increased road and bridge funding and related new grant programs, new cannabis regulations, municipal electricity aggregation, PFAS contamination, water and sewer updates, and other issues.

In addition to the supplemental budget bill, which is now before a conference committee, other legislative issues on the horizon include emergency shelter assistance, a housing bond bill, PFAS, and remote public meetings.
