Last weekend, I had the privilege of attending a conference known as the 2018 National Issues Forum hosted by the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators in Los Angeles, California. Approximately 150 legislators from across the United States came together for this event during which we discussed a broad range of environmental issues and challenges that are facing legislators across America. I’d like to thank those who organized this event including Rep. Pricey Harrison from NC who is a member of the board of this organization. During the conference, Senator Mimi Stewart of New Mexico was given an award for her significant legislative accomplishments. I also had the pleasure of meeting Delegate Dan K. Morhaim, M.D. of Maryland who has also been actively engaged in this organization since it was established. I learned a great deal during this conference, and I’d like to thank all of those who organized this event.
