Legislative Preview 

January will bring a new session of Congress and the Oregon Legislature. What issues will affect the design industry in 2021?

Learn the latest in government affairs from ACEC’s Senior Vice President of Advocacy, Steve Hall, and ACEC Oregon’s lobbyist, Marshall Coba, during this virtual presentation.
Hall will discuss preparations for the 117th Congress, including supplemental funding for state and local agencies in any COVID relief legislation. Hall will also go over possible infrastructure package scenarios.

Coba will provide an overview of what to expect during the Oregon legislative session. Issues will include:
- Duty to Defend
- A road user fee concept being brought forward by the Road User Fee Task Force
- The activities of the Interstate Bridge Committee
- Legislative leadership priorities
- Other key issues

Of particular interest will be the discussion of just how and who will be able to actively lobby legislators as they do the people's business in the Capitol. 

As of now, no public access to the Capitol is anticipated so the process and timeframes will be greatly impacted. 

Help celebrate the holiday season by using a festive background during the Zoom call!
