The Governor’s office is seeking public comment as they develop their budget goals and priorities for FY23. The Administration has created a short presentation with an overview of the budget process and has created public surveys and comment forms to collect public input.

Tell Us Which Issues You Care About Most on the 2022 Legislative Agenda

What issues do you care about most from the Alliance's 2022 Legislative Agenda? We’d like to know, since that will help us get in touch with you with content and updates you are most interested in. To help us better support you, please take the following steps:

1. Review the nine issues in the Alliance's 2022 Legislative Agenda. The issues representing health, housing, nutrition, economic security, and early care and education were selected by the Alliance's Steering Committee in partnership with "lead" organizations.

2. Take a brief survey about which issues you'd like to receive tailored communications about during the fast-paced Legislative Session.

For questions, contact Alliance Public Engagement Director, Dan Brown, at dan@vecaa.org.
