Each summer, NCSL hosts the Legislative Summit, the largest gathering of legislators and staff in the country. We work across the aisle every day to solve problems in our own state, but the Summit gives us the opportunity to talk with Republicans, Democrats and staff from around the country, to really dig into the issues, get new ideas, hear about innovations and solutions, and learn about the hot issues on the horizon. At the meeting, we join together to craft the State’s Agenda, so we can tell Congress with one, strong, unified voice what the states need to maintain our authority and ensure that what comes out of Washington, D.C., is good for us—or at least doesn’t hurt us.

This year’s Summit is in Minneapolis, Minn., Aug. 19-22. I guarantee it will be the best meeting you attend all year. I plan on being there and hope you do to. You can register now on the NCSL website. Call me if you want to talk about the Legislative Summit or any other issue on your mind that NCSL can help you with. It’s an honor to be president of this organization that has strengthened states for 40 years.

Senator Bruce Starr
President, NCSL
