After having several discussions about the pathway to implement a new governance structure as a partnership and with local elected officials and community leaders, the partners decide to take the ongoing funding and oversight challenges to the state legislature in 2019. With the deadline to request legislative concepts be drafted by the State’s Legislative Counsel for pre-session filing, the partners decide to submit a request by the deadline on September 28th and continue to work over the next several months to refine the draft legislation.
