Capitol Connection Newsletter

Recognizing that legislative advocacy is a year-round process, the Capitol Connection newsletter is produced to keep county officials informed about policy issues in the months when the General Assembly is not in session. During the legislative session, ACCG distributes weekly Legislative Updates. To receive either of these electronic publications, please send an email to Communications Manager Nicole Butler at [email protected].
