    Legislative Affairs:

    The Budgets for the State Government are still uncertain as the House and Senate remain divided on the effort. The House continues to decline as much Federal money as they can ( Remember, this is from Taxes YOU pay ), and continue to bicker over the seperation of powers. Please get involved, the Legislature has attacked electrical licensing and requirements for several consecutive years now and eventually the damm will break without your support and engagement.
