LATEST NEWS: As the legislative session for 2023 comes to a close, we are grateful for all the hard work from our members, partners, and ex-officio agencies in getting 7 Committee bills signed into law by the Governor; and 3 pieces of legislation enacted through an amendment in another successful bill. The Committee will release the 2023 Data Reference Book in the next few weeks.
