View Event Details:

This full-day, in-person meeting will be a postconference to NCSL’s 2024 Legislative Summit and is intended for legislators and legislative staff who are interested in disaster and fiscal resiliency policy. Legislative attendees will bring their expertise in budgeting, fiscal management and disaster policy to bear to discuss how to best leverage federal funding opportunities, manage fiscal risks and create a resilience action plan to stay ahead of extreme weather. The meeting's interactive format will give you the chance to collaborate and share ideas with your peers from other states grappling with similar issues after recent floods, wildfires, high winds and drought.
