#RPTCon18: Final Legislative Priorities

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Luke 12:34

The final legislative priorities have been posted.

It was an very interesting, intense process.  The debates were grueling.  The priorities didn't turn out exactly how this author would have written them, but within each item there are issues which this author supports very strongly.

Mostly, we're just happy our taxpayer-funded lobbying stuff sailed through with flying colors.

A note for future conventions: We really should have seven priorities instead of five.

Thank you to all the members of the committee.  We had some contentious discussions about details, but in a broad sense we were pulling in the same direction.  You only need to look at what happened with the platform to see how it could have gone differently.

An extra special, super-duper, THANK YOU to our fantastic committee chair Amy Clark.  Amy ran an open, fair, process that allowed all sides to be heard while still keeping us focused and on-task.  We look forward to the reunion next session.

Without further ado:
